Senator Jim Inhofe
United States Senator Jim Inhofe, one of the leading conservative voices in the Senate, is a strong advocate of common sense Oklahoma values including less government, less regulation, lower taxes, fiscal responsibility and a strong national defense.
He was first elected to the Senate in 1994 to complete the
unexpired term of Senator David Boren who resigned to become president of the
In January 2003, Inhofe became the Chairman of the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee. As Chairman, his priorities include strengthening our Nation's infrastructure, continuing strong environmental protections and improving national security. He said he will work to restore common sense and sound science to the regulatory decisions of the Environmental Protection Agency on such issues as climate variability, clean air mandates, wetlands, and endangered species.
He is also a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, where he continues to play a leadership role on defense and national security issues. He believes we must improve the condition of the U.S. military, and provide greater resources, necessary equipment and proper training. He also believes overseas military missions should serve vital national interests and he is one of the Senate's prime advocates for deploying a national missile defense system.
Inhofe previously served four terms in the U.S. House of
Representatives representing Oklahoma's First Congressional District which
Inhofe grew up in Tulsa and graduated from the University of Tulsa with a degree in economics. He served in the U.S. Army and has been a small businessman (working in aviation, real estate and insurance) for over 30 years. He was elected to the Oklahoma State House of Representatives in 1966, served one term, and was then elected to the State Senate where he served two terms and became Minority Leader. From 1978 to 1984, he was Mayor of Tulsa. Active in aviation, Inhofe became the only member of Congress to fly an airplane around the world when he recreated Wiley Post's legendary trip around the globe. Inhofe and his wife, Kay, are members of the First Presbyterian Church of Tulsa and have been married for 46 years. They have four grown children and twelve grandchildren.
Senator Tom Coburn
Tom A. Coburn, M.D. was elected to the U.S. Senate November 2, 2004.
Dr. Coburn and his wife Carolyn, a former Miss Oklahoma, were married in 1968 and have three children and four grandchildren. They are members of Muskogee's New Community Church.
Dr. Coburn's priorities in the Senate include reducing wasteful spending, balancing the budget, improving health care access and affordability, protecting the sanctity of all human life including the unborn and representing Oklahoma values. As a citizen legislator, Dr. Coburn has pledged to serve no more than two terms in the Senate and to continue to care for patients. He is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and Indian Affairs Committee.
Prior to his election to the Senate, Dr. Coburn represented Oklahoma's 2nd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1995-2001. He was first elected in 1994, then re-elected in 1996 and 1998, becoming the first Republican to hold the seat for consecutive terms. Dr. Coburn retired from Congress to fulfill his pledge to serve no more than three terms in the House of Representatives.
During his tenure in the House, Dr. Coburn wrote and passed far-reaching legislation. These include laws to expand seniors' health care options, to protect access to home health care in rural areas and to allow Americans to access cheaper medications from Canada and other nations. Dr. Coburn also wrote a law intended to prevent baby AIDS. The Wall Street Journal said that: "In 10 long years of AIDS politics and funding, this is actually the first legislation to pass in this country that will rescue babies." He also wrote a law to renew and reform federal AIDS care programs. In 2002, President George W. Bush chose Dr. Coburn to serve as Co-chair of the President's Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA).
During his three terms in the House, Dr. Coburn also played an influential role in reforming welfare and other federal entitlement programs. He led efforts to balance the budget, offering countless amendments to trim the bloated federal budget. In 1999, USA Today noted, "Coburn brought the House to a virtual standstill by threatening to attach 130 amendments to an agriculture appropriations bill that he thought cost too much. Since then, he's almost single-handedly forced nearly $1 billion in cuts from the first seven spending bills the House has passed for the next fiscal year."
Coburn was raised in Muskogee, Oklahoma and graduated from
the public school system in 1966. Four years later, he graduated with a B.S. in
accounting from Oklahoma State University. One of the top ten seniors in the
From 1970-78, Coburn was the manufacturing manager at the Ophthalmic Division of Coburn Optical Industries in Colonial Heights, Virginia. Under his leadership, the Virginia division of Coburn Optical grew from 13 employees to more than 350 and captured 35% of the U.S. market.
After the family business was sold, Coburn changed the course
of his life by returning to school to become a physician. Again he emerged as a
leader, becoming President of his class at the University of Oklahoma Medical
School where he graduated in 1983. He then did his internship in general surgery
at Saint Anthony's Hospital in Oklahoma City and family practice residency at
the University of Arkansas,
Dr. Coburn returned to Muskogee where he specializes in family medicine, obstetrics and allergy. Dr. Coburn and his associates serve more than 15,000 patients for whom he has personally delivered almost 4,000 babies.
Dr. Coburn is also a two-time cancer survivor.
Congressman Dan Boren
Inspired to politics as a youth, Dan Boren has built an impressive record for himself as a strong advocate for responsible government. Elected to the Oklahoma House of Representative at age 29, Dan became one of the youngest state legislators to serve in 2002. Tapped for his leadership ability, Dan was selected by his Democratic colleagues to be Caucus Chairman - making him the first freshman state lawmaker to ever receive this honor.
As a member of the Oklahoma House leadership team, Dan fought to bring jobs and economic opportunities to his district. Working hand in hand with Governor Brad Henry, he helped to protect economic assistance for Oklahoma's rural communities by saving the Rural Economic Action Plan from devastating budget cuts. He also fought to improve rural schools by co-authoring legislation that infused much needed dollars into Oklahoma's schools without raising taxes.
In 2004, Dan was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Oklahoma's 2nd Congressional District. Upon election, Dan obtained a seat on the House Armed Services Committee - a rare appointment for a freshman member of Congress. He also serves on the House Resources Committee, an influential panel which provides Congress with oversight into Indian affairs and public lands.
As a strong advocate for rural communities, Dan's top priorities are job creation, improving education and rural health care, and making Oklahoma's small business environment more conducive to growth. Also an active member of the Congressional Blue Dogs Caucus, Dan works closely with his colleagues to curb unnecessary government spending and keep Congress fiscally responsible.
Prior to public office, Dan served as the President and CEO of the Seminole State College Educational Foundation. He has also served as a senior aide at the Oklahoma Corporation Commission and worked on the staff of former U.S. Congressman Wes Watkins. Dan is also involved in numerous organizations and is an avid outdoorsman and hunter.
Dan earned his B.S. in Economics and went on to obtain an M.B.A. at University of Oklahoma. He and his sister Carrie were born to former Oklahoma Governor and U.S. Senator David Boren and the late Janna L. Robbins. His grandfather, Lyle H. Boren, represented southeastern Oklahomans in the U.S. Congress from 1937-47. Carrying on his family's tradition of excellent public service, Dan serves by the values instilled him at a young age - values of faith, hard work, and personal responsibility. Dan and his wife Andrea reside in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
