OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Republican U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas has defeated two challengers to win the Republican nomination to his U.S. House seat in western Oklahoma.

Lucas is seeking his 11th term in the House.

He defeated Republican challengers Robert Hubbard and Timothy Ray Murray in Tuesday's primary election and will face Democrat Frankie Robbins in the Nov. 4 general election.

Lucas touts his chairmanship of the House Agriculture Committee and passage of a farm bill that he says saves $23 million during the next five years as compared to the previous five years.

The district covers most of western Oklahoma, including the Panhandle.
