As lieutenant governor, her duties included chairing commissions relating to tourism and film policy. Under former Gov. Frank Keating she held the cabinet position of State Small Business Advocate. But under Gov. Brad Henry, did not. She is a former Chairwoman of the National Conference of Lieutenant Governors and the former chairwoman of a national association on state aerospace policy. In 2006, she declined to seek a fourth term in order to run for a U.S. congressional seat. If successful, she will be the first woman elected to Congress from Oklahoma since 1921.
