WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe hasn’t officially announced whether he’ll run for another term, but he has cranked up the fundraising activity for an expected 2014 campaign.

On March 13, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, of Kentucky, and other GOP senators were the honorary hosts for a “campaign kickoff” and “season pass” dinner in Washington for Inhofe’s campaign; a political action committee donating $5,000 or a person donating $2,500 would become season pass holders and receive invitations to all widely attended fundraisers this year.

Inhofe, R-Tulsa, is planning a two-day fishing tournament in April at Lake Texoma — where the entry fees will be $3,000 for a political action committee and $1,500 for an individual donor — and he has various other fundraising lunches and dinners on the schedule.
