TULSA — Oklahoma voters headed to the polls Tuesday for a primary in the middle of a pandemic and a heat wave.

An issue on the ballot that has received a lot of attention is on extending Medicaid to tens of thousands of low-income residents.

Oklahoma is one of 14 states that have not expanded Medicaid.

Nine Republicans are also vying for the 5th District seat held by first-term U.S. Rep. Kendra Horn, the only Democrat in the state's delegation.

The crowded field makes a primary runoff likely.

Republican U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe and U.S. Reps. Markwayne Mullin and Tom Cole all are heavy favorites in their GOP primaries Tuesday.

Republican U.S. Reps. Kevin Hern and Frank Lucas do not have primary opponents.
