Race Should Be No Sweat For Coburn

Tom Coburn (R), first elected in 2004, seeking is a second term. The only drama here was whether Coburn would run again; he didn't announce his decision until Memorial Day. He is a fierce opponent of the Obama agenda, but he has clashed with his own party as well on issues like earmarks. Perennial candidate Jim Rogers (D) won't make Coburn break a sweat. -Ken Rudin
