5th Congressional District-What Happened

Steve Russell

     I've been looking at the numbers and here is what I see.  Mind you I look at statistics all the time and although I am not an expert; I can see pattern especially when it comes to our local population. 

Here are the results from the election according to the OK State Election Board:

                                      FOR UNITED STATES REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT 05

                                       ABSENTEE MAIL   EARLY VOTING               ELECTION DAY     TOTAL                   

STEVE RUSSELL (REP)       10,671                     7,663                       99,391                     117,725   49.31%

KENDRA HORN (DEM)     12,081                     10,094                     98,838                     121,013   50.69%

                         Total         22,752                     17,757                    198,229                   238,738  

   Horn dominated absentee and early voting.  Russell lead in election day votes.  Diving deeper I see that of the absentee and early votes cast most came from SW  and inner city OKC.  Russell did better in the suburbs like Edmond.  Horn was able to motivate more non-regular voters to vote early, and vote for her.  Listen later today for more of my analysis.
