Horn handily captures Democratic nod in closely watched race

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — U.S. Rep. Kendra Horn is the Democratic nominee for Oklahoma’s 5th District. The 44-year-old attorney on Tuesday defeated perennial candidate Tom Guild, a retired college professor from Edmond. Republicans in the district pared down a crowded field of nine GOP hopefuls seeking to replace Horn. Oklahoma City businesswoman Terry Neese and state Sen. Stephanie Bice will advance to an Aug. 25 primary runoff. Horn pulled one of the nation’s biggest congressional upsets in 2018 when she won a seat that had been in Republican hands for four decades. U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe easily dispatched three GOP challengers in his primary.
