Voters select party picks for Oklahoma House, Senate seats
Aug. 09, 2017
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Voters have set the field for special general elections for a vacant House seat in the Tulsa area and an open state Senate seat in south Oklahoma City.
Unofficial results Tuesday show Republican Ross Ford and Democrat Chris VanLandingham were chosen as their party nominees for the House District 76 race in south Tulsa and Broken Arrow. The seat was left vacant following the April death of Republican state Rep. David Brumbaugh.
Paul Rosino fended off six other Republican candidates to capture the GOP nomination for Senate District 45, which covers parts of Oklahoma City, Mustang and Valley Brook. He will face Democrat Steven Vincent. Those candidates are vying to replace former Republican state Sen. Kyle Loveless, who resigned before pleading guilty to felony campaign finance violations.
The special general election is Nov. 14.
