There are now 3 Republicans officially in the race for congress, in central Oklahoma's 5th district. The seat is now held by Oklahoma's lone democrat in the DC delegation, Kendra Horn.
The Oklahoma Republican Party reloaded with brand new leaders at the top of the organization.
The former chair of Tulsa County Republicans, David McLain, received overwhelming support on the first ballot in a field of 3 candidates.
The convention body of nearly 1000 delegates gave 70% support to McLain, followed by 22% for Oklahoma County former Chair, Daren Ward; and 8% for Darren Gantz of the Tulsa County Republican Mens Club.
Vice Chair Michael Turner is a former state legislator who also worked several states for the Trump 2016 campaign. He led the first round balloting, followed by Kyletta Ray, then John Roberts. In the final balloting, Turner enjoyed 53% support, to Ray's 47%.
They take office immediately and plan to be at the state party headquarters on Monday morning.
