This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel about Tulsa Businessman Kevin Stitt's defeat of former Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett for the Republican candidacy in the race for Governor and six incumbent GOP State Representatives who voted against the tax increase for teacher pay raises lose their reelection bids.

The trio also discusses the narrow victory by Incumbent Attorney General Mike Hunter along with the choice to not pursue a recount by challenger Gentner Drummond and the current state of medical marijuana in Oklahoma after passage by voters in June.
