Despite 2 US Senate seats, focus not on Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Even with control of the U.S. Senate up for grabs and both of Oklahoma’s U.S. Senate seats on ballot for the first time in state history, political experts say there doesn’t seem to be much enthusiasm driving voters in Oklahoma this cycle.

Unlike U.S. Senate battleground states like neighboring Arkansas and Kansas, Republicans in Oklahoma are heavily favored to maintain control of both Senate seats and all five U.S. House seats. As a result, expensive media blitzes from out-of-state groups are taking place elsewhere.

But Democrats remain optimistic – especially in the governor’s race, where incumbent Republican Gov. Mary Fallin is fending off a spirited challenge from term-limited Democratic state Rep. Joe Dorman.
