Won’t run for Senate

State Rep. Chuck Strohm, R-Tulsa, has announced he will not run for the Oklahoma Senate in District 37. Strohm previously announced he would seek that seat after Sen. Dan Newberry, R-Tulsa, announced he was resigning on January 31, 2018.

The filing period will be June 26-28, with a winner-take-all primary on September 12 and the special general election on November 14.

Republican Brian O’Hara, a former Jenks City Councilor who is on the staff of U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine, has announced he will run for that Senate seat.
