    Highlighting this election is the race for the Republican nomination for Governor of Oklahoma. Kevin Stitt won the runoff election. He will face former state attorney general Drew Edmondson in November. 

    Edmondson released this statement about Tuesday's results:

    "I congratulate Kevin on winning his party’s nomination. Now that the runoff elections are behind us, I am hopeful he will join me in offering real solutions to the very real problems in our state.  

    “As I’ve talked to everyday Oklahomans in every corner of the state, they tell me that they’re tired of political slogans and mudslinging. They tell me they want better schools. They want access to good hospitals. They want services for our veterans. They want leadership at our capitol.

     

    We can’t afford four more years of the same flawed policies and misguided schemes that have pulled us to the bottom in so many important areas like education, health care and mental health.

     

    It’s time for a governor who is willing to do the hard work and make the tough decisions. It’s time for a governor who understands that open, transparent government is good government. It’s time for a governor who stands up for the people, not the special interests. It’s time for a common-sense governor who can make our state work again.”
