Bio

Lucas was born January 6, 1960 in Cheyenne, Oklahoma. He graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1982 with a degree in Agricultural Economics. He first ran for the Oklahoma house of Representatives in 1984 as a against the incumbent Democrat, narrowly losing. A second attempt in 1986 also fell short, but he won in 1988. Immediately after being seated, Lucas became very vocal for causes he supported. The Democratic-controlled state house redrew his district in 1990, but Lucas was reelected in 1992.

Congressional career

In 1994, 6th District Congressman Glenn English stepped down to become a lobbyist for rural electric cooperatives. Lucas won the Republican nomination for the special election on May 10. Lucas won by eight points, carrying 18 of the district's 24 counties. Lucas has been reelected five times, never dropping below 59 percent of the vote. He faced no Democratic opposition in 2002 and 2004.

His district was renumbered the 3rd after Oklahoma lost a congressional district in the 2000 census, and now covers as much land as the other four districts combined.
