A large number of candidates standing for election or re-election have already been declared winners.

In the U.S. House, District 1, Jim Bridenstine, a Republican from Tulsa, is the winner because no one filed to oppose him, either in the April primary or in the general election.

Five state-wide office holders have been re-elected Four were unopposed in their primary or in the general election: Scott Pruitt for Attorney General, Ken Miller for State Treasurer, Gary Jones for State Auditor, and John Doak for State Insurance Commissioner. Todd Hiett won the primary for the Corporation Commission and no one filed as a Democrat to oppose the primary winner in the general election.

Of the 25 State Senate seats up for election in 2014, 12 State Senators are elected before voting today even began. Eight were unopposed candidates, one of whom was a Democrat. Four won their party’s primary election, one of whom was a Democrat. Of these, nine were incumbents and three candidates were running for open seats – two Republicans and one Democrat.

State House candidates are elected every two years so 101 seats were up for election but 64 have already been decided. 35 Republicans won because no opponent filed in the primary or general election while 15 Democrats had the same fortune. 11 Republicans won their primary and faced no general election opponent and just three Democrats won their primary to claim their seat. Of these 64 seats already decided, eight seats were without an incumbent candidate. Four Republicans won a primary for election and one had no primary or general opponent. Three Democrats won a primary election with no general election opponent.
