Former Oklahoma House Speaker T.W. Shannon is surging in the Oklahoma Senate Republican primary race and now leads Rep. James Lankford, according to a new survey from a pro-Shannon group.
The survey, conducted by the GOP firm Public Opinion Strategies for the group Oklahomans for a Conservative Future, gives Shannon 42 percent support among likely Republican primary voters to Lankford’s 32 percent support.
That’s a gain of 19 points from another survey in mid-March, when Lankford led Shannon by 9 points.
The third candidate in the race, former state Sen. Randy Brogdon, takes 7 percent support, but his share of the vote would be enough to send the primary to a runoff election, which is mandated if no candidate tops 50 percent of the vote.
The poll is the latest indication that Shannon has much of the momentum in the race behind him, after picking up a number of big-name conservative endorsements. This week, FreedomWorks became the latest national conservative group to back him, while Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) endorsed him last week.
