KRMG poses ten questions to the four candidates in U.S. Senate runoff races

TULSA — Oklahoma has a rare opportunity to cast votes for both U.S. Senate seats in the 2022 elections.

Each race has generated a runoff.

Democrats Jason Bollinger and Madison Horn will compete for their party’s nomination to face incumbent U.S. Senator James Lankford in November.

In the race for the open U.S. Senate seat being vacated by a retiring Sen. Jim Inhofe, the runoff is on the Republican side between Rep. Markwayne Mullin and former Oklahoma House Speaker T.W. Shannon.

KRMG asked each of the four runoff candidates to answer ten questions.

The questions were not provided in advance, and each candidate was questioned individually.

They were then allotted 90 seconds for a closing statement.

QUESTION ONE: What is the most important role a US Senator plays in the daily lives of their constituents?
QUESTION TWO: Do you support term limits for US Senators? Why or why not?
QUESTION THREE: What do you consider the most pressing infrastructure need in the US?
QUESTION FOUR: What constitutes the greatest threat to American national security?
QUESTION FIVE: What is your number one legislative priority if elected?
QUESTION SIX: How would you characterize the state of the two-party political system in the U.S.?
QUESTION SEVEN: What changes do you think need to be made to the federal budgeting process?
QUESTION EIGHT: How would you rate the educational system in the US, and do you have any recommendations to improve it?
QUESTION NINE: Do you have any proposals that might make healthcare more affordable and universally accessible?
QUESTION TEN: Do you have a plan for immigration reform?
