OKLAHOMA CITY — President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump easily won the state’s presidential primary election Tuesday.

Democrat Biden received over 70% support while Trump received over 80% of the Republican vote.

The election was also historic in that it marked Oklahoma’s first Libertarian presidential primary since that party was formally recognized in 2016. Chase Oliver defeated Jacob Hornberger.

Oklahoma was among 15 states that held Super Tuesday presidential nominating elections. It marked the biggest day of the presidential election cycle where over a third of delegates were up for grabs.

Sixteen people filed in December to appear on Oklahoma’s primary ballot.

Former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley came in a distant second to Trump.

Trump and Biden both won their respective primary elections in 2020.

While Oklahoma is generally a closed-party state, meaning only those registered with a political party can cast ballots, Democrats allowed registered independents to vote in the election.
