OKLAHOMA CITY -

Democrats in Oklahoma, who already are facing an uphill battle against Republicans in this increasingly red state, now are preparing for two more months of inner-party conflict in races for nominations in three major political contests.

Democratic candidates for an open U.S. Senate seat, open 5th District U.S. House seat and state schools superintendent all were forced into an Aug. 26 runoff when no one was able to capture a majority of votes in last week's primary election. Among those three races, Republicans only have a runoff in the 5th District, and no statewide runoffs.

While Democratic candidates and party officials are putting a positive spin on the opportunity a primary runoff presents, it also means pumping more money and resources into races that pit one Democrat against another.
