ADA, Okla. -- Cowboy and rancher Jet McCoy and his brother Cord are widely known for competing on the CBS reality show, "The Amazing Race."

Now the Ada residents are gearing up to take part in a new venture -- Oklahoma politics.

Jet says that when he and his younger brother, Cord first appeared on the reality TV show in 2010, it would take him 45 minutes to get out of Walmart due to all the attention.

Now, he's looking to capitalize on the fame as both brothers pursue seats in the state legislature -- one Republican, one Democrat.

Their grandfather, Ray Tucker, served in the Oklahoma House in the early 1960s.
