New COVID-19 Restrictions, Candidates for Bice's Seat, Initiative Petitions & More


This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and Civil Rights Attorney Ryan Kiesel about new restrictions by Governor Kevin Stitt in the hopes of reducing the spread of COVID-19 and Oklahoma's seven electors cast their vote for President Donald Trump while the governor acknowledges Joe Biden did win the overall election nationwide.

The trio also discusses the candidates for Senate District 22 previously held by Congresswoman-elect Stephanie Bice after two Republicans were kicked off the ballot and a state lawmaker filing a bill to make it harder to pass initiative petitions at the ballot box.
