Republican Runoff Debate For State Treasurer Set For Tuesday Night

Tuesday, August 16th 2022, 9:52 am


Among the big run-off races slated for Aug. 23 is the Republican race for state treasurer.

News 9 is co-hosting a debate with Tuesday between candidates Todd Russ and Clark Jolley.

In the June Republican primary, state Rep. Russ finished with 49 percent of the Republican vote, nearly avoiding the runoff election. Former state Sen. Clark Jolley received 34 percent of the vote.

The other candidate in the three-man race, David Hooten, resigned as Oklahoma County Clerk during the primary campaign after News 9 brought to light allegations of workplace harassment.

He came in third in the primary election.

Both Russ and Jolley term-limited out of the state legislature and have experience in financial policy making from their time in the state capitol.

Incumbent Republican Treasurer Randy McDaniel announced back in 2020 that he would not be seeking re-election.

The winner of the GOP nomination will face Democrat Charles De Coune in the November general election.

The debate will take place at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday evening inside Rose State College’s Atkinson Theater in Midwest City.

The debate will also stream live on and the News 9 app.
