Oklahoma Gubernatorial Runoff
The former Mayor of Oklahoma City, Mick Cornett is facing businessman Kevin Stitt in the GOP runoff for governor. In a very crowded field, Cornett received 29% of the vote, with Stitt getting 24% back in June. The current Republican governor, Mary Fallin, is term-limited. The winner will face the Democratic nominee, former Attorney General Drew Edmondson. The Republican nominee will be favored in this deep red state, although there is some possibility of a competitive general election race. The outgoing governor was ranked least-popular in the country earlier this year. Interesting trivia: The state has only had successive Republican governors once since it joined the Union in 1907.
Oklahoma House Primary Runoffs
The state has 5 congressional districts. Both parties have runoffs in the 1st district, which is currently vacant. There will be no special election; the winner in November's general election will be appointed to complete the term of former Rep. Jim Bridenstine, who now heads NASA. It's a very red district, so the GOP winner tonight is likely headed to Congress. The Democratic runoff winners in the 2nd and 4th district also have very little chance in November. The Democratic winner in the Oklahoma-area 5th district, likely to be Kendra Horn, has an uphill, but not impossible race against incumbent Rep. Steve Russell. As of this afternoon, the FiveThirtyEight House model gave Horn a 20% chance of prevailing in November.
