OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – With the 2016 presidential election cycle ramping up, the chairmanship of both the Oklahoma Republican and Democratic parties is up for grabs.

Republicans will gather next weekend in Oklahoma City for their annual convention, where incumbent GOP party boss Dave Weston will try to fend off a challenge from two challengers – longtime party activist Pam Pollard and one-time tea party favorite Randy Brogdon.

Oklahoma Democrats will select a new leader for its state party after Wallace Collins said he won’t run for another two-year term. Current Democratic Party Vice-Chair Dana Orwig and Oklahoma City attorney Mark Hammons have announced plans to seek that post at the Democratic Party Convention on May 30th.
