Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair Alicia Andrews will speak to the Canadian County Democrats on Monday, November 14.

The meeting is scheduled for 7-8:30 p.m. at the Yukon Police Department, 100 S. Ranchwood Boulevard.

Andrews will review the mid-term election results, celebrate Democrats elected to Oklahoma House and Senate seats and share the party’s plans for the future.

“Because Joy (Hofmeister) and other Oklahoma Democrats looked so promising, the Republican Governors Association had to spend some money in Oklahoma, which divided their attention from battleground states,” Andrews said. “They haven’t had to do that in recent elections.”

Governor Kevin Stitt was forced to self-fund his campaign with a $1.9 million dollar loan one week before election day.

Democratic Senator Michael Brooks did not have a Republican opponent and automatically won reelection to his District 44 seat in the Oklahoma Senate. His district includes part of Canadian County.

“These successes and more prove that Democrats are gaining ground, and for that we can be proud and hopeful,” Andrews said.
