Governor Brad Henry Heading For Disney World After Election

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Governor Brad Henry ties up loose ends and prepares for a trip to Disney World after beating Congressman Ernest Istook in the gubernatorial race.

Henry's wife and children will accompany him to Orlando, Florida, on an official state trip that includes officials from the Centennial Commission, the Tourism Department and other agencies.

Henry spokesman Paul Sund says Disney World is considering a way to showcase the state's 100th birthday next year.

Henry told reporters yesterday that he's looking forward to leading the state for four more years, focusing on the same things he concentrated on in his first term.

He says the new makeup of the state Senate wouldn't be a detriment to his legislative goals.

After Tuesday's vote, the Senate was split with 24 Democrats and 24 Republicans, setting up the possibility that new Democratic Lieutenant Governor Jari Askins could decide the balance of power.
