The numbers were drastically below the June primary participation, but still 4 Tulsa County Republican races were settled.
It was obvious that candidates with the most devoted voters supporting them, were the eventual winners.
In Senate 39 (midtown-south), Dave Rader withstood a tough challenge by the former Retail executive, Amanda Teegarden. Rader had surpassed 40% in the primary, But Teegarden only closed part of the gap.
Don Newberry defeated the #2 executive in the Court Clerk's office. Name recognition probably helped, as Dan Newberry serves in the Oklahoma senate. Ron Phillips has been handling the day-to-day management of the court clerk's office, as Sally Howe Smith's health issues have curtailed her work capacity. Newberry has been a part of County Assessor, Ken Yazel's team.
