The GOP has 40 seats, the highest number of members for the caucus in state history.

"Oklahomans have given Republicans a historic majority in the state Senate," said Bingman, R-Sapulpa. "With 40 Senators, there is a considerable diversity of leadership and talent in the Republican caucus. I am proud to work with such a fine group of public servants as we advance an agenda to further our economic momentum."
