Last cycle all the congressmen won by wide margins. This time around there is only one district which even drew any speculator's interest.
Congressman Steve Russell is more than 10% ahead of Democrat Challenger, Kendra Horn.

In the US Senate, Republicans now have 50 seats considered safe and have opportunity to gain 6 more battleground slots which Democrats are defending. Oklahoma has no US Senate race this cycle.
Oklahoma's closest watched race is the governor's mansion.
