Gubernatorial polls, teacher pay raises, tribes endorse Hofmeister 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 dueling polls showing different positions in the race for governor ahead of the Nov. 8 general election, Gov. Kevin Stitt calling a $5,000 increase for teacher pay an "easy cop-out" and the Political Action Committee for the state employee's union backing Stitt.

The trio also discusses an endorsement for Joy Hofmeister for governor from the state's five largest tribes and a call by the same tribes to repeal House Bill 1775 also known as the critical race theory ban.
