Democratic primary

Background

Rice officially filed as a candidate for the United States Senate from Oklahoma on Monday, June 2, 2008.[1][2] He won the Democratic primary against Jim Rogers, a retired schoolteacher who stressed campaign finance reform. As in earlier campaigns, Rogers refused to accept money to avoid any question of his allegiances. State Senator Kenneth Corn had earlier expressed interest in the race.

General election

Candidates

Campaign

Inhofe, who in August 2008 had a 61% approval rating,[5] emphasized his conservative record and tried to label Rice as a "committed liberal." In the debates, Rice tried to connect Inhofe to George W. Bush saying "An era allowed this to happen. George Bush came into office eight years ago with a Republican majority and … an agenda of radical deregulation."[6] Rice also believed in global warming, something Inhofe is famous for being against.[7] In the election, Inhofe had over $5 million in the bank. Rice had $3.8 million.[8]

Predictions

CQ Politics rated this race as 'Republican Favored'.[9] The Cook Political Report considered it 'Likely Republican'.[10] The Rothenberg Political Report considered it a 'Safe Republican'.[11]
