Election 2016 in Oklahoma: A Postgame Discussion with David Blatt of the OK Policy Institute

Aired on Wednesday, November 9th.

The "penny sales tax" for education didn't pass, but voters here in the Sooner State did back criminal justice reform; the "Right to Farm" State Question was rejected, yet Republicans won big all over Oklahoma on Election Day, as, indeed, they did nationwide. On this edition of StudioTulsa, we are joined by David Blatt of the OK Policy Institute, an non-partisan, non-profit think tank. Blatt talks with us about how Oklahomans voted last night on a variety of issues, questions, and candidates, and about where we as a state might go from here...particularly regarding education funding and the state budget. Also on today's program, our commentator Jeff Martin is remembering a certain dinner he and his wife shared recently at a restaurant in midtown Tulsa.
