OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — While much of the political attention has been focused on the race for Oklahoma's open 2nd Congressional District seat, voters in eight separate state House and Senate races will decide their nominees on Tuesday's primary runoff election.
There will be eight primary runoffs for open legislative seats — four each in the Senate and House.
In the Senate, Republicans are squaring off Tuesday for the nomination in District 15 in Norman, District 17 in Oklahoma and Pottawatomie counties, District 33 in Tulsa and the newly drawn District 43 seat in south-central Oklahoma that includes portions of Garvin, Grady and Stephens Counties.
Nominees also will be selected in four House districts — District 88 in Oklahoma City, District 14 in Muskogee, District 53 in Moore and District 70 in Tulsa.
