TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Five-term Republican Congressman John Sullivan is facing opposition from his own party heading into the state's June 26 primary election.
Navy pilot Jim Bridenstine says Sullivan has been in office too long and has become part of the problem in Washington D.C. He also knocks Sullivan for missing nearly 700 votes during the 10 years he's been in office.
