Oklahoma Voters To Decide On US House Seats, 6 Issues
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The makeup of Oklahoma's congressional delegation hangs in the balance as voters head to the polls. Democrats are trying to stave off a GOP sweep Tuesday. Republicans hope to capture all five of the state's U.S. House seats for the first time since the late 1990s. The last Democratic seat in Oklahoma is the 2nd Congressional District in the eastern part of the state, currently held by U.S. Rep. Dan Boren. He's resigning. Oklahoma earned the moniker "reddest state in the nation" in 2008 when President Barack Obama failed to win a single one of its 77 counties. Besides the House seats, voters will cast votes for president. They'll also decide on six state questions.

Okla. Legislature honors Moore schools educators
May 23, 2013 22:06 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma Legislature is honoring two educators from a school district where a massive tornado destroyed one elementary school and heavily damaged another.
Robert Romines, incoming superintendent of Moore Public Schools, and Shelly McMillin, principal of Briarwood Elementary School, appeared before the Oklahoma House and Senate Thursday.
Their visit comes after a monstrous tornado ripped through Moore on Monday and destroyed the Plaza Towers Elementary School, killing seven third-graders. The same tornado heavily damaged Briarwood.
Romines says the area has witnessed a lot of devastation, but that it will rebuild. He asked lawmakers to pray for strength and wisdom and courage for the community.
Superintendent of Schools Janet Barresi says the Board of Education has agreed to suspend the remainder of Moore's school year and has waived some reporting requirements.
