This Election Results Map
post looks at the Labor Commissioner runoff . Last week, I posted the maps for the State Auditor
and Attorney General
runoffs, and yesterday I posted the GOP Corporation Commission
Cathy Costello held a 7-point lead in the primary, but ended up losing by 4.68% to Leslie Osborn. Costello did very well in the southeast, won the Tulsa metro, but Osborn handily beat her in most of the rest of the state. Multiple counties, including Oklahoma County, went Osborn's way by less than 3%, but Costello was unable to make up that deficit in the Tulsa metro.
During the primary, Costello led in 52 counties while Osborn led in 19. That was substantially reversed in the runoff. Costello ended up winning only 17 counties (two of which went to Swinton in the primary), while Osborn won 60 counties (flipping 3 Swinton counties and 37 Costello counties).
