(Tulsa-AP) -- Some members of Oklahoma's congressional delegation appear apprehensive to respond to a survey from Governor Keating about redistricting.

Oklahoma will lose one of its six congressional seats, but the current members aren't talking yet about saving their districts.

A possible reason may be the questions on the survey.

Keating's survey asks the congressmen to identify the areas of their district that are ``most important'' to keep. It also asks them to identify the areas they no longer want in their district.

Congressional staffers say there's no way an incumbent politician would answer such loaded questions.

But Third District Representative Wes Watkins did. But his response wasn't exactly a clear answer. He said he'd like to keep all of his present district.
