Delaware County – The race for county commissioner District #1 was a close race with Rep. Doug Smith coming out on top with 2,533-58.14% to David Poindexter-D 1,824 or 41.86% of the votes tallied in Delaware County.

Smith, a businessman and former Oklahoma Tourism Department Economic Developer, said, “I am looking forward to working on the challenges we face in Delaware County.” Smith told Poindexter, when he called to congratulate him that the district election “ran with integrity and dignity. Delaware County should be proud of how this race was conducted.”

U.S. Rep. Mary Fallin leveraged her two decades of roots in Oklahoma politics to energize Republican voters and smash a gender barrier Tuesday, becoming the state’s first female governor and leading a GOP sweep of state government.

Delaware County voters favored Fallin with almost 64 percent of the votes being cast her way.

Fallin defeated Democratic Lt. Gov. Jari Askins, enabling Republicans to control — for the first time in state history — both the governor’s office and Legislature at the same time. The GOP also captured every statewide elected office, by either ousting Democratic incumbents or replacing Democrats who decided not to run.

With all of the state’s precincts reporting unofficial returns late Tuesday, Fallin received 60 percent of the vote over Askins, who also has served as a judge and legislator. Fallin and Askins gave up relatively safe seats to replace term-limited Democratic Gov. Brad Henry.

Fallin, who campaigned on making Oklahoma more business friendly, shrinking state government and improving public education, said she was proud to become Oklahoma’s first female governor, but wants to be judged on her accomplishments.

“I hope that what will be the historic nature of this race is that we begin a new future of moving Oklahoma forward during some very challenging times,” Fallin told supporters during an election rally in Oklahoma City. “That starts tonight.”

She also asked: “Are you ready to send a signal to the nation that Oklahoma is ready and open for business?”

Other Statewide race winners: , Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb, State Auditor & Insp. Gary Jones, Attorney General Scott Pruitt, State Treasurer Ken Miller, Superintendent of Public Instruction Janet Barresi, Commissioner for Labor Mark Costello, Insurance Commissioner John Doak, U.S. States Senator Tom Coburn, and U.S. House District #2 Dan Boren.

Oklahoma voters also overwhelmingly rejected State Question 744, a ballot measure that would have required the state to meet a regional average in per-pupil spending on common education.

State Questions that passed were 746, 747, 748, 750, 751, 752, 755, 756 and 757. Those questions that failed were 744 and 754.
