Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson is joining forces to keep "under God" part of the pledge of allegiance.

During a meeting in Oklahoma City, the attorneys general from 49 states made a united statement. Together they have filed papers asking the US Supreme Court to reverse a ruling that strikes down reciting the Pledge in public schools because it refers to God.
