GOP continues dominance of Oklahoma politics

Posted: Updated:

Associated Press (AP) _ Republicans continued their domination of Oklahoma politics, capturing all five U.S. House seats, extending their majorities in the state House and Senate and handing GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney one of his largest vote margins in the country.

Unofficial results show Romney captured 67 percent of the vote over President Barack Obama in Oklahoma on Tuesday and won all of the state's 77 counties. Republicans maintained control of all four GOP-held U.S. House seats, and Republican plumbing company owner Markwayne Mullin captured the sprawling 2nd District in eastern Oklahoma, the last Democrat-held seat in the state.

The GOP now controls Oklahoma's entire congressional delegation, every statewide elected office and both chambers of the Oklahoma Legislature for the first time in state history.
