Oklahoma Republicans are poised to break a tie in the state Senate and take control of the chamber for the first time in history, the Tulsa World reports:
Republican Dan Newberry defeated incumbent Sen. Nancy Riley, D-Sand Springs, for Senate District 37.
Republican James Halligan beat Democrat Robert Murphy Jr. for Senate District 21. That seat had been held by Senate Pro Tem Mike Morgan, D-Stillwter, who could not run again due to term limits.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
