WASHINGTON — Rep. Kevin Hern won re-election representing Oklahoma’s first congressional district on Tuesday.
District 1 includes all of Tulsa County, Wagoner County, Washington County, and parts of Rogers and Creek counties.
Voters chose Republican Rep. Kevin Hern to represent District 1 in 2018.
Hern was facing Democratic candidate Kojo Asamoa-Caesar and independent candidate Evelyn Rogers in this general election.
From 2011 to 2015, Hern was chairman of the finance committee of the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority. He’s also been a McDonald’s franchisee and served on the McDonald’s National Leadership Team.
Democratic candidate Kojo Asamoa-Caesar is a first-generation American with roots in Ghana.
Asamoa-Caesar was born in Virginia and moved to Tulsa to become a teacher. He’s since served as the founding principal of Greenwood Leadership Academy and interim executive director for 36 Degrees North.
Independent candidate Evelyn Rogers ran as a Republican in 2016 for the District 1 seat but lost to Jim Bridenstine in the party’s primary.
Rogers has worked as a librarian at Tulsa Community College.
