Businesswoman Terry Neese and state Sen. Stephanie Bice were the top two finishers in the Republican primary for Oklahoma’s 5th Congressional District. As of 10:30 p.m. Central Time on June 30, Neese was first with 37% of the vote and Bice was second with 25%. Because neither candidate received more than 50% of the vote, the two will advance to an August 25 primary runoff.
Nearly all of the satellite spending in the primary was by Club for Growth Action, which opposed Bice, and American Jobs & Growth PAC, which supported her. The winner will challenge incumbent Kendra Horn (D).
