Lankford Avoids Senate Runoff in Oklahoma

Rep. James Lankford (R-OK) avoided a Republican primary runoff for Oklahoma's open U.S. Senate seat, while Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) easily won the GOP nomination Tuesday in his bid to keep the state's other seat for a fourth term, the Oklahoman reports.

"This year's election is the first time in modern history that both of Oklahoma's U.S. Senate seats are on the ballot at the same time. Besides the full six-year term for Inhofe's post, the state's other Senate seat became open when U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn announced in January that he was foregoing his final two years in office after a recurrence of cancer."
