Ironically, while the Republicans and Democrats only had one candidate each, filed for the US Senate seat; The OKLP has 2 candidates, Robert Murphy and Dax Ewbank.
I've often defended my party involvement by saying;
"You can pick your choice from the November menu, in the general election, Or you can help create the menu by voting in the primary elections."
With Oklahoma having about a quarter million independent voters, they will overwhelm the primary election with their votes. The Libertarian nominee for US Senate will be whomever the Independent voters select.
Being an Independent in Oklahoma is sort of like being the "unparty" party. If they ever really organize a move to throw out the 2 major political cartels, this state's legislature may look more like the British House Of Commons.
