Election Results Maps: GOP Gubernatorial runoff

This Election Results Map post looks at the GOP runoff for Governor. Previously, I posted the maps for the GOP State Auditor, Attorney GeneralCorporation CommissionLabor Commissioner, Lieutenant Governor, and State Superintendent runoffs, as well as the Libertarian gubernatorial runoff.

Kevin Stitt absolutely swamped Mick Cornett in the eastern half of the state, topping 70% in Okmulgee, Haskell, Latimer, Pushmataha, Atoka, and Choctaw counties, as well as Cimarron County in the Panhandle. He won Tulsa County by 22.3%, and won most of the rest of the Tulsa metro by over 25%.

Mick Cornett won Oklahoma County by 15.55% and Payne County by 10.7%; the remaining seven counties that he won were by an average of 4.93%.

Overall, Cornett won his nine counties by an average of 6.75%, while Stitt won his 68 counties by an average of 24.2%. Where Stitt won, it tended to be a landslide.

In the primary, Cornett won 24 counties to Stitt's 13; third-place candidate Todd Lamb won 39 counties. In the runoff, Stitt carried all but one of Lamb's counties, and flipped 16 counties that Cornett had won, in addition to winning the one county that went to Dan Fisher.

In the runoff, Stitt won 68 counties to Cornett's 9.
