Lieutenant Governor

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel about State Question 798 to put the governor and lieutenant governor on the same ticket by 2026 similar to the President and Vice President and a new report finds recently ousted incumbent Republican lawmakers were challenged from leadership in their own party.

This November, Oklahomans are deciding on the second in command for the executive branch of state government.

The Lieutenant Governor presides over the Senate when needed, but for the most part the position is designed to promote the state of Oklahoma.

KOSU’s Michael Cross reports neither candidate for Lieutenant Governor faced a primary opponent, so both are looking ahead to the general election.
