The latest in Oklahoma

Nov. 23, 2021

On Nov. 22, Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt signed the GOP proposal for the state’s five congressional districts into law. The new map creates five safely red seats, undoing Oklahoma’s one competitive seat: the Oklahoma City-based 5th District, which currently has a FiveThirtyEight partisan lean of R+11. Instead, the new map moves the 5th District all the way to R+24 by shedding heavily Democratic parts of Oklahoma City and giving them to the dark-red 3rd District.

In theory, a single congressional district could cover almost all of Oklahoma County, which would result in a swing seat, but the Republican-drawn map instead splits it between three districts. The Democrats’ alternative proposal in the state Senate did lay out an R+8 5th District based almost entirely in Oklahoma County. But the Democratic plan never had any hope of passing in the overwhelmingly Republican legislature.
