KINGFISHER — The women running as Republicans in the Kingfisher County clerk primary spend every day working in the same building and in some cases the same office.
Donna Copeland, Jeannie Boevers and Teresa Wood are vying for the same job when voters go to the polls for the Tuesday primary.
Wood is the incumbent. Copeland also works in the clerk's office and Boevers works in the county treasurer's office.
All three women said there hasn't been any acrimony even in a race that will likely result in a runoff.
With no Democratic opponent in the fall, the primary race will determine who gets the job.
“We all get along fine,” Boevers said. “We're just right across the hall from each other. There hasn't been any animosity at all. Donna has worked here for 12 years, and Teresa has been here for 15 years. We all know each other pretty well.”
Copeland said, “Obviously all three of us want to win, but we've kept it very civil.”
Wood was appointed when Judy Grellner retired.
She said with three candidates in the race she expects a runoff.
“But I'd love to get to that 50.1 percent,” she said.
