Tulsa Businessman Kevin Stitt beat out former Attorney General Drew Edmondson and Libertarian candidate Chris Powell for the state’s top executive position.

 

Stitt, who has no former experience in politics, was endorsed by President Donald Trump shortly after winning the Republican nomination in August.

 

A few weeks before the election, Vice President Mike Pence rallied for Stitt in Oral Roberts University in Tulsa.

 

Republican Senate Pro Tempore-designate Greg Treat extended his congrats to Stritt shortly after the announcement.

 

"I want to congratulate Governor-elect Kevin Stitt on his impressive win in the governor’s race. Voters connected with his bold, new vision for Oklahoma. There will be a lot of common ground and shared goals between Governor-elect Stitt and the Oklahoma Senate Republicans. I’m very excited and optimistic about the future of Oklahoma. Thank you to my fellow Oklahomans for putting trust in Senate Republicans. We stand ready to work closely with Governor-elect Stitt and Speaker McCall to make Oklahoma a Top 10 state!"
