Oklahoma County v Tulsa County: Presidential politics edition
Oklahoma and Tulsa counties, the two most populous in the state, split Tuesday in their voting for presidential nominees in both parties.
Oklahoma County backed Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Marco Rubio. Tulsa County favored Democrat Bernie Sanders and Republican Ted Cruz.
It's not the first time the counties, home to Oklahoma City and Tulsa, have gone their separate ways.
Here are the times they have split in recent years:
2008 Democratic primary
Oklahoma County: Barack Obama
Tulsa County: Hillary Clinton
2008 Republican primary
Oklahoma County: John McCain
Tulsa County: Mike Huckabee
2012 Republican primary
Oklahoma County: Mitt Romney
Tulsa County: Rick Santorum
In 2008, the state of Oklahoma also favored Hillary Clinton; and in 2012, Santorum won the state, meaning Tulsa County was in line with the overall Oklahoma results in those races.
However, in all of the splits, Oklahoma County backed the party's eventual nominees: Obama, McCain and Romney.
