Oklahoma House speaker T.W. Shannon, a Republican Party rising star, has declared his candidacy to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn. Shannon, who is African-American, will face off with two-term Congressman James Lankford for the Republican nomination. The Republican National Committee isn't taking a side in the primary race.
