The race to replace Inhofe, special session, Oklahoma flags and more

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and Civil Rights Attorney Ryan Kiesel about a new poll showing a sizeable lead by Congressman Markwayne Mullin in the U.S. Senate race to fill Jim Inhofe's seat, a battle over tax reform in a special session between the House, the Senate and the governor and legislation to return oversight of the Tourism Department from the executive director back to the commission.

The trio also discuss the Cherokee Nation returning Oklahoma flags to tribal sites after removing them earlier this month and a Virginia political action committee faces a lawsuit from the Oklahoma Ethics Commission over actions it took in the 2018 elections.
