OK Senate Leader Reacts to GOP Gains
The leader of the State Senate calls the election results a good night for Senate Republicans and the State of Oklahoma.
After the dust cleared on election night, State Senate Republicans held a 36 to 12 advantage over Democrats, a four seat gain.
Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman says despite the huge majority he still plans to work closely with Democratic Leader Sean Burrage.
“With the new numbers certainly comes responsibility. I look forward to sitting down with Senator Burrage. We’ve got 48 members in the senate, and everybody’s got good ideas.”
Bingman says he plans to meet with the rest of his caucus in the next few weeks to put together an agenda for the next legislative session.
He credits Republican gains with the conservative pro-growth, pro-business message which rings true to the Oklahoma voter.
