Election Results Map: GOP Insurance Comm Primary


For the latest installment in my Election Results Maps series, we now take a look at the GOP Insurance Commissioner race. As is my custom, I try to match primary results map colors to campaign logos when possible.

In one of the less well-known downballot races, State Rep. Glen Mulready was the only statewide Republican candidate to clinch the nomination in the primary election* -- seemingly only due to the fact that there was only one other candidate.

Mulready spent at least $500,000 in the primary, while Chasteen spent less than $10,000. Nevertheless, Chasteen still won 16 counties, including a string of counties in southern Oklahoma.

The closest result was in Mayes County, where Chasteen beat Mulready by a vote of 2,295 (50.05%) to 2,290 (49.95%). Mulready received over 60% in Alfalfa, Ellis, Harmon, Harper, Kingfisher, Nowata counties, while Chasteen took 62% in Stephens County.


* - Republican State Rep. Randy McDaniel clinched the GOP nomination for State Treasurer by virtue of being the only individual to file on the Republican side.
