House Democrats Reorganize

Oklahoma City, OK – Okla. House Democrats re-elect Inman as leader

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Oklahoma House Democrats have re-elected Rep. Scott Inman of Del City to a second term as the leader of the House's minority party.

Inman was re-elected to the leadership post during caucus elections on Monday. He was initially elected in April 2009 and spent much of 2010 working alongside former Democratic Leader Danny Morgan of Prague.

Inman was 30 years old when he was first elected and became the youngest person to lead House Democrats in state history. He also was the first Democratic leader from Oklahoma County in more than 40 years.

House Democrats also re-elected Rep. Jerry McPeak of Warner as Democratic Caucus Chair and Rep. Joe Dorman of Rush Springs as Democratic Caucus Vice-Chair. The three Democratic leaders will serve through November 20
