County Joins State In Voting Republican; Sen. Inhofe, Rep. Cole Win Reelection
Murray County joined with fellow Oklahomans in voting overwhelmingly for Republican candidates in last week’s general election.
County voters followed the statewide trend in supporting the Trump-Pence ticket as they did in approving Jim Inhofe as U.S. Senator and Tom Cole as U.S. Representative, both longtime office holders. Inhofe beat his main challenger, Abby Broyles (D), by more than four to one while Cole enjoyed an even bigger margin in the District 4 Congressional race. Both men also enjoyed state and district-wide wins as did Republican Corporation Commissioner Todd Hiett.
Except for judicial retention, those were the only candidates on the Murray County ballot as a large turnout of 5,912 voters cast their ballot. That represents 73.29% of the total number of registered voters in the county, according to Murray County Election Board Secretary Tommie Grimes.
