TULSA - Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe predicts his party will regain the majority in the U.S. Senate after the November elections -- but even with that advantage, he believes Republicans won't have a veto-proof majority.
Inhofe made the remarks Monday morning during a breakfast in Tulsa sponsored by the State Chamber of Oklahoma.
The 77-year-old senator, who is not up for re-election this year, touted several recent accomplishments, including funding state transportation projects and passing into law his so-called Pilot's Bill of Rights.
Inhofe also took political shots at the Obama administration, accusing it of adding more than $5 trillion to the national debt. He says the president wants to raise taxes and cut defense spending to pay for it.
Inhofe is up for re-election in 2014.
