Gingrich describes Obama as a national security risk

(CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich on Tuesday stood by comments he made the previous day urging voters to defeat President Barack Obama as a "duty of national security."

Asked what he meant by his remarks, the former House speaker said the president's policies pander to Islamic countries and the federal government refuses to "talk accurately about radical Islam."

Santorum rebuts Romney attacks

Oklahoma City (CNN) - Following an energetic rally here on Thursday, Rick Santorum pushed back against a recent spate of criticisms from GOP rival Mitt Romney.

Santorum takes on 'environmental terror'

Oklahoma City (CNN) - Speaking in one of the top energy-producing states in the country, Rick Santorum tailored his stump speech here on Thursday to appeal to a raucous crowd of domestic energy-loving Okies.

Oklahoma to challenge health care law

(CNN) - The state of Oklahoma will file a lawsuit within the next few weeks challenging the constitutionality of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, according to the state's incoming attorney general.

"There is great clarity for me on the necessary and urgent need to exercise my responsibility to defend Oklahoma's Constitution against a federal government and president that have gone too far in their overreach of power and authority," Attorney General-elect Scott Pruitt said in a written statement Friday.

Oklahomans vote on Sharia law ban

(CNN) – Looks like Oklahomans will not, repeat not, be subject to Sharia law anytime in the near future. Local media in the state, tonight, is reporting that ballot initiative SQ755, which bars state courts from using Islamic or international law, is on the path to approval– Yes votes outweighing Nos by more than two-to-one, with about 40-percent of the precincts in.

The outcome was never in doubt, but the measure's necessity was, and is. Constitutional scholars point out that Sharia law is religious law, and the first words of the First Amendment say, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion."

Still, the fact that it got on the ballot in the first place says a lot about what's on voters' minds.

Democrat Jari Askins (left) and Republican Mary Fallin (right) each secured their party’s nomination and will face off in Oklahoma’s gubernatorial election.

(CNN) - Oklahomans will elect their first female governor come November, after two women secured their party's nomination in last night's gubernatorial primaries.

Lt. Gov. Jari Askins defeated her Democratic challenger, Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson, by less than six-tenths of one percent of the vote, according to Oklahoma's State Election Board . Despite the razor-thin margin, Edmondson conceded the race and threw his support behind Askins.

As expected, Rep. Mary Fallin secured the Republican nomination, trouncing her three challengers and handily avoiding a runoff election.
