    A democrat winning a senate seat in OK would be equal to a republican getting elected mayor of DC. In other words forget it.

      Brad Carson was running a pretty competitive race against Coburn when it was an open seat back in 2004, but Coburn pulled away late in a pretty good year for Republicans. And, as late as 2006, Brad Henry, an ultra-liberal by Oklahoma standards, won re-election to the Governor's mansion by a large margin. So, it's possible, though unlikely that Democrats can win statewide in Oklahoma, just not on the Presidential level.
