U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas has won the

Republican nomination in Oklahoma’s sprawling 3rd Congressional

District.

Lucas defeated GOP challenger William Stump in Tuesday’s primary

election. He will face the winner of the Democratic primary and

independent William Sanders in the general election in November.

Lucas is Oklahoma’s senior member of the U.S. House and is

seeking re-election to an 11th term. Lucas is chairman of the House

Agricultural Committee and says his leadership helps determine

national agricultural policy when Congress writes legislation

impacting farmers and ranchers.

The 3rd District includes more than 34,000 sq. miles and is

Oklahoma’s largest congressional district, taking up almost half

its land mass. It is one of the largest agricultural regions in the

nation and comprises all or part of 32 of Oklahoma’s 77 counties.
