Incumbent Republican Congressman Ernest Istook declined to seek an eighth term in Congress, instead opting to run for Governor, creating an open seat.

Though Fallin was victorious on election day, her margin of victory over Democratic opponent David Hunter was the thinnest margin of any member of the Oklahoma congressional delegation.
