Tulsa, OK – U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn says that while he hasn't yet decided on whether to run for a second term in the Senate, he has no plans to enter the 2010 governor's race in Oklahoma.
The Republican from Muskogee spoke yesterday at the Republican Women's Club of Tulsa. Before his speech, he said the fact a ``Coburn for Senate'' Web site has been activated should not be taken as confirmation he will seek re-election for that office in 2010.
He says the Web site is, quote, ``something you have to do if you have any money come in.''
New York, NY – A $630 million project to replace New York City's Kosciuszko (Kuh-SHOOS'-koh) Bridge will include input from Native Americans in Wisconsin and Oklahoma.
Highway Administration spokesman Doug Hecox says New York state has notified federal officials that the project could affect some ancestral land of the Stockbridge-Munsee Mohicans, based in Wisconsin, and the Delaware Nation, based in Oklahoma.
Dan Keefe of New York's Historic Preservation Office says preliminary studies show the area could hold buried artifacts.
