Oklahoma state Sen. Stephanie Bice (R-Oklahoma City) scored a 53-47% win in the 5th Congressional District Republican runoff last night, defeating former Lt. Governor nominee Terry Neese who placed first in the June 30th Republican primary. Ms. Bice now advances into the general election to face freshman Rep. Kendra Horn (D-Oklahoma City), the first Democrat to represent this seat since 1974. This will be one of the top congressional races in the country and a must-win seat for Republicans if they are to have any chance of re-claiming the majority they lost in 2018.
The Oklahoma 5th District electorate that supported President Trump with a 13-point, 53-40%, margin in 2016 is now the third strongest Trump district in the country that a Democrat represents in the US House.
