WaPo: OK's 5th District 2nd-most likely to flip in 2020


The Washington Post's political analysis blog The Fix published a list today of the "top 10 House races of 2020", and Oklahoma's 5th District lands in at number two:
10. Georgia’s 7th (Republican held but will be OPEN in 2020).
9. Illinois’ 14th (Democratic held).
8. New York’s 11th (Democratic held).
7. Pennsylvania’s 10th (Republican held).
6. Texas’s 23rd (Republican held but will be OPEN).
5. New Mexico’s 2nd (Democratic held).
4. New York’s 22nd (Democratic held).
3. South Carolina’s 1st (Democratic held).
2. Oklahoma’s 5th (Democratic held). Political analysts say Rep. Kendra Horn’s (D) win in this Oklahoma City district was the one of the biggest surprises for Democrats in all of 2018. She is just the third woman Oklahoma has sent to Congress, ever. This is another district that Trump won by double digits (13.5 points) and another case in which Republicans like their potential nominees, such as state Sen. Stephanie Bice and entrepreneur Terry Neese.
1. Utah’s 4th (Democratic held).
