Undated_Oklahoma Republican Senator Jim Inhofe is running for another term in the U.S. Senate.
It will be his 4th term.
He said one of his primary motives is to stop the cuts to the Defense Department enacted by President Obama.
"People who are really liberal don't think we need a military anyway, and that's what we're suffering from right now. There's never been a raid on military like we're having right now under the Obama administration. I'm the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and we're fighting him tooth and nail."
Inhofe says he also wants to fight the White House over what he calls their war on fossil fuels.
Inhofe would be 80 at the start of his next term if re-elected.
Democrat Matt Silverstein has filed to run against Inhofe.
