OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - While many incumbent members of Congress across the country are vigorously defending their seats against well-financed challengers, political experts in Oklahoma say it will take a monumental upset to oust any of the state's incumbent U.S. House members.
Oklahoma's four incumbent Republicans are U.S. Reps. John Sullivan, Frank Lucas, Tom Cole and Mary Fallin, while U.S. Rep. Dan Boren is the delegation's lone Democrat.
All are heavily favored in today's general election.
Bob Darcy, a professor of political science and statistics at Oklahoma State University, says that with Republican presidential hopeful John McCain also a heavy favorite in Oklahoma over Democrat Barack Obama, the state hasn't been a major target of either party.
