TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Congressional candidates running for Oklahoma's 1st District are expected to meet this week in an election forum sponsored by the Coweta Chamber of Commerce.
Republican Jim Bridenstine and Democrat John Olson are slated to meet at Wednesday's forum.
Bridenstine is a political newcomer with tea party backing who defeated five-term incumbent Rep. John Sullivan in the primary election. Bridenstine has knocked Sullivan's votes that he said weren't conservative enough for Oklahoma.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Election Board is denying a state group's attempt to place Libertarian presidential candidates on Oklahoma's November ballot.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Voters in eastern Oklahoma's sprawling 2nd District will cast ballots in two top political races Tuesday — both to determine the nominees in the battle to succeed the only Democrat in the state's congressional delegation.
Republicans want to stamp out the last bit of blue on Oklahoma's congressional map, while Democrats are looking to hold on to the seat currently held by U.S. Rep. Dan Boren,
Boren announced last summer he wouldn't seek another term.
