Another round of voting took place Tuesday for several political races in Oklahoma.
Voters returned to the polls to decide winners for 11 different state and federal offices. These races went to a runoff after the June 26 primary election could not decide the winners.
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.”
The June 26 primary election could not separate a handful of candidates for congressional races.
Kevin Hern won the runoff election against former Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris. Tim Gilpin won on the Democratic side.
Broken Arrow voters approved a more than $200 million bond.
The “Build Our Future” 2018 general obligation bond features 88 city improvement projects including street-widening projects, a new fire station and more.
Twelve teachers are running for seats in Green Country districts. After the teacher walkouts from last spring, educators have rallied in support of these teachers reaching office.
They are asking for voters to elect teachers who are running for seats in the state legislature. Teachers at a rally on Thursday said only they will do what it takes to fix the state’s education funding problems.
