(Image:Frank Lucas2.jpg) In 1994, 6th district Congressman Glenn English stepped down to become a lobbyist for rural electric cooperatives. Lucas won the Republican nomination for the special election on May 10. He faced Dan Webber, press secretary to former Governor (Governor of Oklahoma) and U.S. Senator David L. Boren, now president of the University of Oklahoma. The 6th was already the largest in the state, stretching from the Panhandle to the town of Spencer (Spencer, Oklahoma), in the far northeastern Oklahoma City metropolitan area. However, the state legislature (Oklahoma Legislature) had redrawn it so that it included many poor Oklahoma City neighborhoods that had never voted Republican. Lucas scored a major upset; he won by eight percentage points, carrying 18 of the district's 24 counties (County (US)). His victory has been seen by some pundits as an early sign of the wave six months later that saw the Republicans take control of the House for the first time in 40 years. Lucas himself won a full term in that wave and has been re-elected seven times, never dropping below 59 percent of the vote. He faced no Democratic opposition in 2002 and 2004. *'''2002''': Charlotte Hornets (Charlotte Hornets (NBA)) moved to New Orleans. *'''2005''': New Orleans Hornets moved to Oklahoma City following Hurricane Katrina.
