Democrats Eclipse Previous Election Cycle Filings

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Democratic Party responds to a 46 percent increase in Democratic Candidate filings:

Voters are fed up with Republicans. The increase in candidates who filed is a referendum on ineffective GOP leadership. Eight years of continuous budget cuts have prompted an outpouring of support for teacher filings and first-time candidates.

“Democrats are showing up to clean up the mess Republicans have made in our state,” stated Democratic Party Chair Anna Langthorn. “It is clear that Oklahomans are tired of failed promises.”

The Oklahoma Democratic Party congratulates all Democratic candidates and is ready to help guide candidates in their success.
