OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe says his son’s fatal plane crash has led him to closer relationships with some of his political opponents.

Doctor Perry Inhofe died November 10th when the plane he was piloting crashed near Owasso.

On NBC’s News "Meet the Press" Sunday Senator Inhofe – a Republican – said he’s gotten as many and maybe more communications from Democrats as he has from Republicans since his son’s death. Inhofe specifically mentioned Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Inhofe said unanswered questions remain about his son’s crash – including why an engine on the airplane shut down.
