Oklahoma Democrats have the wind at their back. Last month, they won Oklahoma's 44th State Senate seat and Oklahoma’s 75th State House seat with decisive margins. Both Democrat victors, Senator-Elect Brooks-Jimenez and Representative-elect Gaddis centered their platforms on Oklahoma’s growing education crisis.
A lifelong Oklahoman and educator with more than 40 years of public service, Karen Gaddis (D) runs for Oklahoma’s 75th State House seat for a second time following her 2016 loss to former Dan Kirby (R). The sexual misconduct scandal that shook Kirby’s brief tenure resulted in his resignation and the re-opening of the HD-75 seat.
