Election Results Maps: Lt. Governor runoff

This Election Results Map post looks at the Lieutenant Governor runoff . Previously, I posted the maps for the GOP State Auditor, Attorney GeneralCorporation Commission and Labor Commissioner runoffs.

In perhaps the most surprising turnaround from the primary, Matt Pinnell turned a 10.15% primary deficit into a 16.28% runoff victory. That's a massive swing, and the above map shows just how strongly Pinnell performed. He received 60+% of the vote in 42 of 77 counties, including three where he garnered over 70% of the vote.

In contrast, while Dana Murphy received majority votes in 16 counties and plurality leads in another 33 counties during the primary, she ended the runoff ahead in just 7 counties, and winning one of those by 0.3%.

Pinnell held every one of his counties from the primary, picking up the two that Eddie Fields had won, and flipped 42 Murphy counties to his column.

In the primary, Dana Murphy won both the Oklahoma City and Tulsa metros; Pinnell handily defeated her in both metros in the runoff.
