A crowded GOP field narrows in Oklahoma's Senate primary runoff

Oklahoma voters will now have a choice between two candidates after choosing among 13 candidates in the U.S. Senate special GOP election primary on June 28.

A runoff will be held on Aug. 23 to determine who will win the Republican nomination to replace Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe. Since none of the candidates surpassed 50 percent in the first round, Mullin and Shannon will face off in a runoff.

U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin received the most support with 43.6 percent and former Oklahoma Speaker of the House T.W. Shannon finished second at 17.5 percent, Decision Desk HQ reported.

In Oklahoma's 5th Congressional District, Horn served as a U.S. representative from 2019 to 2020. She was unopposed in the Democratic primary and will face whichever candidate prevails in the runoff in November.

Libertarian Robert Murphy and independent candidate Ray Woods are also on the ballot.
