Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma told Newsmax on Monday he will definitely seek re-election in 2014.

At 78, the licensed pilot said he would not run "the day I can't fly an airplane upside down."

One of the most conservative of senators, the former House member and Tulsa mayor is a leading opponent in the Senate against "global warming alarmism."

In the same interview, Inhofe told Newsmax claims that climate change contributed to the deadly Oklahoma tornadoes last week did a "disservice" to the victims.

Only two Sooner State senators have served longer than the 18-year-incumbent: Republican Don Nickles, who served from 1981-2005, and blind Democrat Thomas Gore, grandfather of playwright Gore Vidal, who served from 1907-21 and again from 1931-37.
