OKLAGHOMA CITY --  The Associated Press is giving the Oklahoma Senate race to incumbent Republican U.S. Senator Tom Coburn.

Coburn defeated Democratic candidate Jim Rogers and Independent candidates Stephen Wallace and Ronald Dwyer.

Coburn said he sought a final term in the U.S. Senate to "continue to uphold and defend the Constitution and work to fight wasteful government spending, hold career politicians and bureaucrats accountable to the American people, and restore the vision of limited government envisioned by our country's founders."

Coburn also served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1994 until 2000.
