Brecheen advances to runoff for Okla. U.S. House seat
DURANT, Okla. (KXII) - Former Coalgate state senator Josh Brecheen has advanced to the runoff in his bid for U.S. Congress.
Avery Frix and Brecheen were the top vote-getters in Tuesday’s Republican primary, but neither captured a majority.
There were 14 republicans on Tuesday’s primary ballot for US House - District 4 in Oklahoma.
Three of those candidates have Texoma ties including Brecheen, current Durant state Rep. Dustin Roberts, and Erick Wyatt of Kingston.
“I want to talk about the fiscal and moral bankruptcy that our nation is facing,” Brecheen said Tuesday. “This candidacy is not about a candidate. It’s about a nation who is in trouble.”
