Coburn said the ads mischaracterized Lankford's service in Congress. He added, Lankford is a man of absolute integrity and can make good decisions because he is not a career politician.

Oklahomans for a Conservative Future have spent more than $800,000 on ads supporting Shannon, and more than $200,000 on ads attacking Lankford.
