Gov. Mary Fallin has defeated two pro-marijuana challengers to win the Republican nomination in her quest for a second four-year term as Oklahoma’s chief executive.

Fallin defeated Oklahoma City criminal defense attorney Chad Moody and libertarian-leaning Dax Ewbank of Guthrie in Tuesday’s Republican primary. The win sets up a November general election matchup against Democratic state Rep. Joe Dorman of Rush Springs and two independents.

Both Moody and Ewbank made their support of legalized marijuana an issue in the campaign, but Fallin said she opposed even the medicinal use of the drug.

The 59-year-old Fallin has never lost an election during her 25-year political career in Oklahoma that began in the Oklahoma House and included stints as lieutenant governor and in Congress.

Oklahoma U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe has defeated four challengers to win the Republican nomination.

Inhofe is bidding for a fourth, six-year term in the Senate. He’ll face one Democrat and three independent candidates in the Nov. 4 general election.

Inhofe would be 80 at the start of his term next year. He has rejected knocks from his opponents that he had stayed too long in Washington and wasn’t conservative enough.

Inhofe’s campaign has maintained that he has consistently been ranked among the most conservative members in the Senate.

Inhofe had a health scare last year when he underwent emergency quadruple bypass surgery, but said in a recent interview that he was "overhauled and ready to go."

Republican U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas has defeated two challengers to win the Republican nomination to his U.S. House seat in western Oklahoma.

Lucas is seeking his 11th term in the House. He defeated Republican challengers Robert Hubbard and Timothy Ray Murray in Tuesday’s primary election and will face Democrat Frankie Robbins in the Nov. 4 general election.

Lucas touts his chairmanship of the House Agriculture Committee and passage of a farm bill that he says saves $23 million during the next five years as compared to the previous five years.

The district covers most of western Oklahoma, including the Panhandle.

Republican John Doak has been elected to a second term as Oklahoma’s insurance commissioner.

Doak won another four-year term in Tuesday’s winner-take-all primary contest. Doak defeated longtime insurance agent Bill Viner. No Democrats or independents ran for the position.

Doak rode a tea party wave to oust a Democratic incumbent in 2010. He touted his visits to all of the state’s 77 counties during his first term and his efforts to ensure that victims of severe weather were fairly compensated for losses.

Viner campaigned on a promise to reduce insurance rates and criticized Doak for accepting campaign funds from entities regulated by the department.

Several elected officials in Oklahoma drew no opponent this election cycle, including Auditor and Inspector Gary Jones, Attorney General Scott Pruitt and Treasurer Ken Miller.
