How Much Each District Judge Has Received in Campaign Donations

Whitney Bryen/Oklahoma Watch

Candidates running for one of Oklahoma’s 75 district judge seats have raised more than $2 million so far this election cycle (as of the latest campaign finance filing period that runs through Aug. 13.)

Of that amount, about $1.6 million has came from individual donors with half of those contributions coming from attorneys.

Since Oklahoma lacks specific guidelines for when judges should recuse themselves, some worry the donations create conflicts of interest in cases.

Although some candidates have taken in little or no money from attorneys, others have taken in tens of thousands of dollars from those in the legal profession.
