KETCHUM, Okla. (AP) – Severe weather has forced U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe to land his airplane at a small airport in Oklahoma. Donelle Harder, a spokeswoman for the 81-year-old Oklahoma Republican, told The Associated Press that Inhofe was out flying Sunday evening when weather forced him to land in Ketchum, about 70 miles northeast of Tulsa. Harder says the senator, an avid pilot, "walked away" and is now at home with his family.
