OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma Congressman Frank Lucas says his influence as chairman of the House Agriculture Committee is the prime reason he should be re-elected to an 11th term representing the state's 3rd Congressional District.

Lucas faces William Craig Stump for the Republican nomination in the June 26 primary.

Democrats Timothy Ray Murray and Frankie Robbins are competing for their party's nomination in the November general election. Independent candidate William Sanders of Stillwater will also appear on the general election ballot.

Lucas says his leadership on the agriculture committee helps determine national agricultural policy. Stump did not return phone calls seeking comment.

Murray says Lucas' policies favor large farming companies instead of the individual family farm while Robbins says he'll work to end partisanship and misinformation in Congress.
