Fallin Wins Governors Race In Oklahoma

KSCB News - November 2, 2010 12:00 am

U.S. Rep. Mary Fallin has made history in

Oklahoma, where voters elected the Republican to become the state’s

first female governor.

Fallin leveraged her two decades of political roots in Oklahoma

to pull in the historic win over Democratic Lt. Gov. Jari Askins.

Her election also completes a power sweep for Republicans in

Oklahoma that began with taking the House in 2004, and the Senate

in 2008.

Fallin replaces Democratic Gov. Brad Henry, who is term-limited.

The all-woman governor’s race in Oklahoma and New Mexico this

year were just the third and fourth such matchups in U.S. history.
