Democrats are reflecting on what happened in Oklahoma and across the nation in the wake of the election day Republican rout. Not unexpectedly, the GOP won big in the Sooner State, but Oklahoma Democratic Chair Wallace Collins says they were expecting a better showing in a couple of races…the Governor’s race and that for Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Collins believes that out of state money poured into Republican coffers had a big influence on the outcome. He also says the failure of young voters to go to the polls hurt Democrats. He thinks less money hampered Democratic efforts to get their message out to voters to inspire them to get to the polls.
