Yesterday, we reported that Oklahoma state Sen. Stephanie Bice (R-Oklahoma City) scored a 53-47% win in Tuesday’s 5th Congressional District Republican runoff, thus officially beginning the general election opposite freshman Rep. Kendra Horn (D-Oklahoma City), the first Democrat to hold this seat since 1974.
Before the runoff, but just released after Ms. Bice became the nominee, Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research (8/5-9; 500 OK-5 likely voters) gave Rep. Horn a 51-46% lead over Sen. Bice. Though the Republican state legislator trailed in this survey, it was taken before her victorious runoff campaign fully unfolded. The GQR data suggest the Horn-Bice November race is headed for the toss-up realm.
