Powell finishes with commanding lead in gubernatorial primary

As expected, Chris Powell was the top Libertarian vote-getter in Oklahoma’s gubernatorial primary on Tuesday, finishing with 49% in unofficial results. However, with no candidate reaching a majority, there will be a run-off with the second place finisher on August 28th. “Another 39 votes and we would have had enough to win outright,” said Powell, “if Oklahoma used ranked choice voting this would be over, but now we have two more months of primary campaigning.”
