The Oklahoma Senate was one of the few legislative bright spots for Republicans in the 2006 elections, with the G.O.P. pulling into a 24-24 tie with Democrats in the chamber. Now, as the Oklahoman reports, Republicans think their prospects look even brighter:
The GOP leader in the state Senate said Thursday chances are good Republicans will control the Legislature's upper chamber for the first time in state history.
Coffee, co-president pro tempore of the evenly split Senate the past two years, said the GOP's chances of winning a Democratic seat in Stillwater improved this week when it was disclosed the Democratic Senate candidate, former Payne County Judge Robert Murphy, applied for his old judicial post.
"He can't seem to decide what job he wants," Coffee said. "It also suggests he's not confident that he's going to win."
