Gov. Kevin Stitt on Thursday obfuscated the circumstances surrounding next week’s visit from a key member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force.
President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that Oklahoma is among six states Dr. Deborah Birx will visit to provide "aggressive, tailored and targeted guidance" on handling the coronavirus.
Stitt described her stop differently at a news conference.
"She’s making some stops in Iowa and a few other states. And so, we’ve invited her to Oklahoma," Stitt said.
