Donald Lee, a Senator from Oklahoma; born in Ponca City, Kay County, Okla., December 6, 1948; attended the public schools; graduated, Oklahoma State University in Stillwater 1971; served in the National Guard 1970-1976; businessman; member, Oklahoma State senate 1979-1980; elected as a Republican to the United States Senate in 1980; reelected in 1986, 1992 and 1998 and served from January 3, 1981, to January 3, 2005; chair, National Republican Senatorial Committee, Republican Policy Committee, Committee on the Budget; Republican whip; was not a candidate for reelection in 2004. Nickles quickly rose in the Senate Republican leadership, serving as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee in the 101st Congress; Chairman of the Republican Policy Committee in the 102nd, 103rd, and 104th Congresses; and Assistant Republican Leader from 1996 to 2003. After being term-limited out of the Assistant Leader position, Nickles served in the 108th Congress as Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee. Nickles was also on Bob Dole's short list of vice presidential choices, before Dole finally decided on former Congressman Jack Kemp of New York. In December 2002, Nickles became embroiled in the controversy surrounding Republican Leader Trent Lott. At Senator Strom Thurmond's 100th birthday party, Lott had made comments that some took to be racially insensitive. As the controversy grew, Nickles went on national television and became the first senator in the Republican leadership to say that Lott should step down. Nickles believed that the controversy over Lott's remarks would distract from the Republican legislative agenda, and as he served as Lott's deputy in the Senate this statement was seen as the proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back." Despite many apologies for his remarks, Lott stepped down shortly thereafter. Declining to run for the position of Senate Majority Leader himself, Lott was succeeded by Bill Frist of Tennessee. Nickles was re-elected in 1986, 1992 and 1998 and was the senior senator from Oklahoma from 1994 to 2005. On October 7, 2003, he announced that he would not run in the 2004 election. Republican Tom Coburn was elected to succeed Nickles. Nickles went on to found The Nickles Group, a government consulting group in Washington, D.C.. He also serves on the board of directors of a number of public companies, such as Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake Energy. He was one of the politicians featured in the movie Traffic giving his opinion on the war on drugs. Nickles and his wife, Linda, have four children and several grandchildren.
