Run-off election needed to decide Republican candidate for Oklahoma Corporation Commission

RUNOFF Election: Marietta City Council - Ward 5 | Cobb County Georgia


The race to pick a new Oklahoma Corporation Commissioner on Tuesday resulted in a run-off election slated for August between the two top candidates.

Neither Kim David nor Todd Thomsen received more than 50% of the votes so a run-off for the Republican nomination will be necessary on August 23.

David, the former State Senator whos legislative term expired received the most votes with 135,629 or 41.07% while Thomsen, a former House member received 85,828 votes or 25.99%.

Two others in the race were Justin Thornback who received 67,214 votes or 20.35% and Harold Spradling who received 41,588 votes or 12.59%.

The runoff election is set for August 23 and July 29 is the last day for voters to register. Early voting will begin Aug. 18 and continue on Aug. 19 and 20.

The winner of the GOP runoff will take on Warigia Margaret Bowman in the November general election. She is the only Democrat running for the office and a Democratic primary was not necessary.

The winner will succeed Dana Murphy who was term-limited.
