(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Senator Joe Lieberman has brought his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination back to Oklahoma.

Lieberman began today's swing through the state at a pancake breakfast in Oklahoma City by criticizing President Bush's tax and environmental policies.

Lieberman is calling for a restructuring of the income tax code to raise rates for the wealthy while cutting them for the middle class. He also criticized the Bush administration for a leak that revealed the name of a C-I-A officer.

Another Democratic presidential candidate plans a campaign even in the state later today. Congressman Dennis Kucinich (koo-SIN'-itch) will speak this afternoon at Wiley Post Airport in Oklahoma City.
