U.S. Reps. Mary Fallin and Tom Cole were heading back to Oklahoma late this afternoon, sharing the cost of a chartered plane out of Dulles Airport. The two had to wait to vote on emergency funding for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq before leaving and then couldn’t get commercial flights back to the state in time to make their watch parties.
Fallin, R-Oklahoma City, is hoping to win the GOP nomination for governor tonight. Cole, R-Moore, is poised to win his fifth term in the U.S. House if, as expected, he defeats R.J. Harris of Norman in the primary.
