Both Oklahoma Senate seats are on the ballot this year. In the regularly scheduled election, Republican Sen. James Lankford is favored to win a second full term.
The other seat is held by five-term Sen. Jim Inhofe, who announced in February that he would retire at the end of the year. The winner of the special election will complete the final four years of his term. GOP Rep. Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) is favored in this election.
This has been one of the more surprising governor's races. Despite the deep red lean of the state, GOP Gov. Kevin Stitt is locked in a competitive race as he seeks a 2nd term.
Opposing him is Democrat Joy Hofmeister, the state's superintendent of public instruction. Hofmeister changed her party affiliation from Republican to Democrat to run in this race.
Many of Stitt's troubles can be traced to his poor relationship with the Native American community. The five largest tribes in the state gave their collective endorsement to Hofmeister last month.
These elections will take place under redistricted boundaries. All are safe for Republicans. This includes four incumbents and Josh Brecheen, expected to succeed Markwayne Mullin, who is the party's nominee in the U.S. Senate special election.
Republicans hold a dominant 39-9 majority over Democrats in the Oklahoma State Senate. Members serve four-year staggered terms; the even numbered districts will be contested in 2022.
