Judicial race develops

Commissioners, assessor and treasurer unopposed


There will not be any political races in McClain County for  the offices of county commissioner, assessor or treasurer.

Incumbents who filed for re-election last week included Glen Murray of Wayne in District No. 1, Terry Daniel of Blanchard in District No. 3, assessor Kendal Sacchieri of Blanchard and treasurer Teresa Jones of Wayne.

Incumbent Charles Gray has announced he is seeking re-election.

Purcell Attorney William Deveraux reports he has also filed for the position.

District Judge Leah Edwards did not draw an opponent.

The Oklahoma State Election Board was scheduled to release filings across the board after 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Fourth District Congressman Tom Cole, 74 of Moore, filed for re-election.

He will face James Taylor, 63, of Oklahoma City and Frank Blacke, 45, of Oklahoma City in the primary with that winner facing Democrat Mary Brannon, 70,  of Washington in the general election.

Since long-time U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe is retiring, a special election will be held to fill the unexpired term.

A total of 16 candidates, 13 Republicans, one Democrat, a Libertarian and one Independent, filed for Inhofe’s seat.

James Lankford drew two Republican challengers.

There are five Democrats who will face off in a primary for Lankford’s seat in addition to one Independent and one Libertarian candidate.
