We asked him if he appreciated being able to focus on legislating, instead of running for re-election.

"I personally like the campaign. Campaigning is fun for me. But when you represent people, in a way, you're campaigning all the time. You're making an effort to make your constituents' views and ideas heard in Washington, D.C.," Bridenstine said.

There's plenty of competition for Oklahoma's other congressional seats. You can view that list here.
