Special election set to fill Senate seat to be vacated   

The Associated Press - June 14, 2017 9:55 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Gov. Mary Fallin has scheduled a special election to fill the state Senate District 37 seat that will be vacated early next year.

Fallin on Tuesday scheduled a special primary election for Sept. 12 and the special general election for Nov. 14. If a special primary election is unnecessary, the special general election will be Sept. 12.

The filing period for candidates is June 26-28.

Republican state Sen. Dan Newberry of Tulsa has announced plans to resign the seat in January to seek a promotion in his professional career.

The seat is the seventh GOP-held seat to be vacated in the past year after two other Republican senators and three GOP House members previously resigned and a fourth Republican House member died in office.
