James Paul Lankford (born March 4, 1968) is an American politician serving as the senior United States senator from Oklahoma, a seat he has held since 2015. A member of the Republican Party, he previously served as the U.S. representative for Oklahoma's 5th congressional district from 2011 to 2015. From 1996 to 2009, Lankford was the student ministries and evangelism specialist for the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma and director of the youth programming at the Falls Creek Baptist Conference Center in Davis, Oklahoma. In January 2014, Lankford announced he would run in the 2014 U.S. Senate special election following Tom Coburn's planned resignation from the Senate. He won the June 2014 primary with 57% of the vote, becoming the Republican nominee. He won the special election with nearly 68% of the vote and was elected to the balance of Coburn's term. He was reelected in 2016, again with nearly 68% of the vote, and in 2022, with 64% of the vote. He became the senior senator in 2023 after Senator Jim Inhofe retired.

Voterly uses special interest group ratings to determine a politician's stance on a political or social issue. Special interest groups release ratings of politicians to convey whether that politician is in favor of their cause. For example, a politician who actively supports gun rights will receive a high rating from a pro-gun interest group. That same politician would be rated low by a gun control interest group. This collection of ratings informs where we place a politician on the spectrum of the issue.
