US Sen. Jim Inhofe, 85, of Oklahoma to seek another term

The Associated Press - March 6, 2020 9:12 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe says he’ll run for another six-year term in office. The 85-year-old, who has been a fixture in Oklahoma politics for more than 50 years, told The Associated Press this week that his close relationship with President Donald Trump and his seniority on two key Senate committees are the main reasons he’s running again.

Inhofe’s decision is not much of a surprise, since he’s raised more than $2 million in campaign funds.

Inhofe released a campaign video of himself flying a plane upside down to announce his campaign for reelection in 2020 and prove he’s still not too old to be in Congress.

Two Democrats and one Republican have filed paperwork indicating plans to run against Inhofe, including former television reporter Abby Broyles, a Democrat. Formal candidate filing is next month.
