Stitt wins governor’s seat in state

OKLAHOMA CITY — Voters in Oklahoma haven’t elected a Democrat for president since Lyndon Johnson in 1964, but it’s a different story with governor.

The conservative state has a propensity for electing a candidate from the opposite party occupying the White House, and that fact isn’t lost on Democrat Drew Edmondson.

The folksy 72-year-old former state attorney general from Muskogee is hoping history repeats itself Tuesday in his bid to knock off Tulsa mortgage company owner Kevin Stitt, a Republican who casts himself as a businessman outsider in the mold of President Donald Trump.
