Winners React After Oklahoma Election Results
KFOR-TV – As results continue to pour in from the Oklahoma primary, some candidates have been declared early winners.
Governor Mary Fallin released a statement following her victory in the primary.
“My thanks go out to all who participated in today’s Republican primary election, including the many volunteers who worked long hours on my campaign. I did not take this nomination for granted, and I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to once again be the GOP candidate for governor.
“Moving forward, my message to Oklahomans will be a simple one: in the last four years, we’ve worked successfully to create 80,000 new jobs; we’ve eliminated government waste and made our state agencies perform more efficiently; and we’ve stood up to President Obama and Washington politicians when they’ve tried to force bad policies on the people of Oklahoma.
“Oklahoma is on the right track and our families and businesses are prospering. I am asking voters to support my reelection in the upcoming campaign and help us continue to build our state’s impressive forward momentum. Together, I know we can make Oklahoma an even better place to live, work and raise a family.”
United States Senator Jim Inhofe released a statement following his victory in the Republican primary for United States Senate.
“Serving the people of Oklahoma in the United States Senate is an honor I do not take lightly. Without regard to party, I will continue to fight for Oklahoma’s interests in Washington and combat a Federal government that is out of control.”
