Oklahoma's 1st congressional district special election, 2002
2002 United States House of Representatives special election in was held on January 8, 2002 to select the successor to Oklahoma's 1st congressional district Steve Largent (R) who resigned to focus on his campaign for Governor of Oklahoma. Both of the major parties held primaries to determine their nominees. The Republican primary featured a competitive contest between then-First Lady of Oklahoma Cathy Keating, and state Senator Scott Pruitt, and the eventual winner state Representative John Sullivan. Sullivan subsequently defeated Tulsa School Board present Doug Dodd by a ten point margin.
Given the strong conservative bent of the district, which voted for
George W. Bush over Al Gore 62% to 38% in 2000 and has not been represented by a Democrat since 1987, Democrats did not seriously contest this race.
