Republicans Seek State Congressional Sweep (Nov 06, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The makeup of Oklahoma's congressional delegation hangs in the balance as voters head to the polls.

Democrats are trying to stave off a GOP sweep Tuesday. Republicans hope to capture all five of the state's U.S. House seats for the first time ever.

The last Democratic seat in Oklahoma is the 2nd Congressional District in the eastern part of the state, currently held by U.S. Rep. Dan Boren. He's resigning.

Oklahoma earned the moniker ``reddest state in the nation'' in 2008 when President Barack Obama failed to win a single one of its 77 counties.

Besides the House seats, voters will cast votes for president. They'll also decide on six state questions.
