Oklahoma Primary Likely to Dictate the State’s Future for Years to Come

As Oklahoma nears it’s upcoming June 26 primary election, the political landscape is taking a turn for more uncertainty. Usually as the primaries wind down, voters can see a clear indication where the parties are headed. However, due to the large number of people running for public office, this primary election is proving to be a little different.

Oklahoma stands at a crossroads, with zero predictability as to where the state may be headed in the next four to 10 years. Even more interesting are the numbers. Of all the candidates, 435 are running for 125 legislative seats, 15 are running for governor, while hundreds more are running for Congress, secondary statewide offices, and district attorney. Additionally, 360 candidates are currently running for the state’s 101 House of Representatives seats, the youngest candidate being just 21 years old. Never has the state been in such a position in a primary election.

With the unpredictability of Oklahoma’s primary election quickly coming to a head, the fate of the state lies in the hands of Oklahoma’s 2 million registered voters.
