Republican Rep. Markwayne Mullin has won a third House term, defeating Democratic candidate Joshua Harris-Till for the Second District seat representing eastern Oklahoma.

Mullin said four years ago that he would limit himself to three terms in Washington. But after this year's primary, he said that while he hadn't changed his mind, he and his wife would pray about whether he should remain in office longer.

Mullin has served on the Energy and Commerce Committee and touted his work on a bill to limit the effect of a "Clean Power Plan" put forth by the Obama administration. He said he feared higher electricity prices.

Harris-Till was formerly an aide to Dan Boren, who held the congressional seat prior to Mullin. He wanted to work on immigration reform.
