NewsOK 5:54 p.m. One more hour until the polls close.

There’s a good chance Republican voters in the 5th Congressional District in Oklahoma, Pottawatomie and Seminole counties will select the person who will become Oklahoma’s newest U.S. representative. No Democrat has won this district in four decades, and the seat is considered safe for the GOP.

There also will be a Democratic runoff for state school superintendent featuring Peggs Public Schools Superintendent John Cox, who received 41 percent of the vote in the primary, and Astec Charter School founder and operator Freda Deskin, who got 38.2 percent. The winner faces Republican Joy Hofmeister in the general election.
NewsOK 5:55 p.m. Another interesting runoff will be in state House District 88 in Oklahoma City, where former pastor Jason Dunnington, who had 40 percent of the primary vote, faces Paula Sophia, a former police officer and U.S. Army veteran, who had 24 percent. Sophia is trying to become the state’s first transgender legislator.

There is no Republican candidate in that district, so the winner gets the seat, as will be the case in several legislative runoffs.
NewsOK 10:12 p.m. Oklahoma state Sen. Connie Johnson easily defeated perennial candidate Jim Rogers in a primary runoff Tuesday to determine the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate. Here's the story: http://newsok.com/article/5...
