House Ag Committee Chair Frank Lucas Wins GOP Nomination as Reelection Bid Moves Forward

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 03:41:54 CDT

House Ag Committee Chair Frank Lucas Wins GOP Nomination as Reelection Bid Moves Forward Oklahoma Third District Congressman Frank Lucas has cruised to an easy victory on Tuesday evening as GOP voters give him over 83% of the votes- propelling him into the November general election where he will be a prohibitive favorite to win reelection.

Congressman Lucas has served this current term as the Chairman of the House Ag Committee, leading the efforts to write what turned out to be the 2014 Farm Law. His opponents used arguments against the Chairman that the Farm Law was too expensive and heavily laden with unnecessary subsidies for American agriculture. In coments with Farm Director Ron Hays, Lucas thanked the voters of the Third District for vindicating his bi partisan work on bringing to a successful conclusion the multiple title farm bill. Lucas says "It's nice when your neighbors demonstrate that they understand what you were trying to do for them and with them- I'm very pleased with the vote from the good folks from the third district."

Lucas congratulated Congressman James Lankford for winning outright the GOP nomination to run this November for the right to serve out the last two years of Senator Tom Coburn's spot in the US Senate.

And he reminded the farm community that no matter the outcome of the runoff race in Mississippi where Senator Thad Cochran is fighting for his political life against Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel. He said that Senator Cochran was very helpful in making sure that farmers had choices in the farm safety net as the final decisions were made about the makeup of the 2014 Farm Bill. "No matter what happens tonight, agriculture owes him a debt of thanks for helping make sure that the 2014 farm bill was brought to fruition."
