Broyles to Run for US House Ater Failed US Senate Bid

Mike Seals - September 1, 2021 8:18 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A Democrat who lost a U.S. Senate race in Oklahoma in 2020 said Wednesday that she will challenge the incumbent Republican for a U.S. House seat that was successfully targeted by the GOP in a hotly contested 2020 campaign.

Abby Broyles said she will oppose first-term Republican Rep. Stephanie Bice for the 5th Congressional District seat representing central Oklahoma, including Oklahoma City.

Bice defeated incumbent Democratic Rep. Kendra Horn, winning 52% of the vote in the 2020 race that was targeted by the Republican Congressional Committee.

The Democratic Congressional Committee has not listed Bice as a target for the 2022 midterm elections.

Horn was the only Democrat in the state delegation and was targeted after pulling off one of the nation’s biggest political upsets in 2018, defeating a two-term GOP incumbent for a seat held for four decades by Republicans.
