A Preview of the Oklahoma Primary Election (Jul 28, 2008)
Voters across Oklahoma will select winners today in primary races for sheriffs, county and court clerks, county commissioners and a variety of local tax initiatives. And there are a number of House and Senate races worth watching. For a preview of some of the key races and what it all means, KGOU News Director Scott Gurian speaks with University of Oklahoma Political Science Professor Keith Gaddie.

Correction: An earlier version of this interview that aired this morning incorrectly stated that State Rep. Wallace Collins (House dist. 45) faces challengers both from the GOP side and within his own party. In fact, there are four Republicans vying for the position, but Collins does not face any Democratic primary challengers. Also Rep. Mike Reynolds (dist. 91) is in his third, not second term.
