Oklahoma City, OK -

The dust still hasn't settled on Oklahoma's 2014 political landscape after U.S. Senator Tom Coburn triggered a landslide within the state Republican Party with his announcement that he planned to forego his final two years in office.

All eyes are focused on whether Oklahoma House Speaker T.W. Shannon and first-term U.S. Representative Jim Bridenstine decide to enter the race for Coburn's soon-to-be vacant seat.

Republican U.S. Representative James Lankford of Edmond already announced his candidacy, throwing open his 5th District U.S. House seat and setting off another scramble by GOP hopefuls looking to replace him.

And former Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating is flirting with the possibility of a bid for the U.S. Senate, telling The Associated Press in an email he hasn't ruled it out.
