Democrats Win Both House and Senate Seats in Special Election

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Democratic Party has released the following statement regarding HD75, and SD44 Special Election wins:

Last night’s House District 75 and Senate District 44 clear victories prove that Oklahoma is not a “Republican” state and voters are ready for change at the State Capitol. The ODP congratulates Representative-Elect Karen Gaddis and Senator-Elect Michael Brooks for their well-run campaigns and victories as they step forward to fight for our Democratic values.

When Oklahoma voters have the opportunity to get to know candidates and talk about the real issues facing Oklahoma–without the distracting background noise of national politics–they vote for Democrats.

Oklahomans proved tonight that they believe their children should have good schools, affordable health care, and that everyone should be able to work for a living wage. Those are the values of the Democratic Party, and that’s why we’ll continue to surprise the Republicans in the remaining 2017 special elections, and in 2018.
