Voters in Oklahoma will elect representatives for five House seats, four of which are held by Republicans. (One seat is vacant, most recently held by a Republican.) They will also choose a governor, an office currently held by a Republican. See Oklahoma’s primary results.
Self-funding businessman Kevin Stitt won 24 percent of the vote in the Republican primary, then advanced in an a tight runoff. He will face former Oklahoma attorney general Drew Edmondson, who unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination for governor in 2010. The winner will replace unpopular term-limited Gov. Mary Fallin (R).
Going into this election, Oklahoma had 4 Republican representatives, with 1 seat currently open. Here’s how each district leans politically, based on how it voted in the 2016 presidential election, with 2018 results as they come in.
Congress this week is poised to pursue two diverging strategies for ending the partial government shutdown, but it is far from clear how Republicans and Democrats will reconcile their differences and reopen the government.
