Sharp Contrasts Define the Frontrunners in Gubernatorial Race

The Kevin Stitt-Drew Edmondson race will be a study in contrasts, with Stitt positioning himself as a Donald Trump-like outsider with business acumen, and Edmondson positioning himself as a serious-minded, experienced public servant wanting more support for education and social services.

Few Statewide Candidates Voluntarily Disclose Financial Information

Only four of 28 candidates for statewide elected office in Oklahoma have voluntarily released details about their personal finances similar to what is typically disclosed by federal candidates and candidates in other states. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Drew Edmondson released his tax returns and detailed finances. Republicans Mick Cornett and Kevin Stitt declined to release theirs, as did most of the non-gubernatorial candidates.
