Oklahoma Republican state Sen. Stephanie Bice has defeated Democratic congresswoman Kendra Horn and taken back the only Democratic-held seat in the state’s congressional delegation.
Stephanie Bice Defeats Kendra Horn
Bice earned a reputation as a political moderate in her two terms in the Oklahoma Senate.
Horn narrowly won the Oklahoma City-area House seat in 2018 in a district that President Donald Trump had won two years earlier by nearly 14 percentage points. Horn tapped into a network of enthusiastic women and young people in increasingly diverse Oklahoma City and pulled off one of the midterm elections’ biggest upsets.
But Republicans outnumber Democrats in the district, which includes several traditionally conservative suburbs and two rural counties. Before Horn’s election, it had been in Republican hands for four decades.
Can The Democrats Lose The House?
While it may take days to finally answer who has the House majority.
As of this moment, it’s already clear if the Democrats hold onto the House, Nancy Pelosi will be presiding over a shrunken majority after they lost at least seven incumbents and only ousted two Republican lawmakers in initial returns.
