LAWTON, Okla. (AP) – Five of the candidates seeking the Republican nomination in the race for Oklahoma’s open U.S. Senate seat have promoted their conservative credentials at a forum in Lawton.

The GOP candidates took turns criticizing President Barack Obama and bashing federal agencies and Congress during the forum Friday evening at Cameron University. Among those participating were former state Senator Randy Brogdon, college professor Kevin Crow, two-term U.S. Representative James Lankford, businessman Eric McCray and former House Speaker T.W. Shannon.

They are among seven Republican candidates seeking the nomination in the race to replace Republican U.S. Senator Tom Coburn. Coburn announced in January that he was stepping down with two years left on his term.
