The Morning Brew: GOP candidates spending big on governor's race

Spending big for governor

The Oklahoman's Chris Casteel takes a look at spending on both the GOP and Democratic party candidates heading into the runoff next week, and the general election in November. Spoiler alert: It's a lot of cabbage.

Republican gubernatorial candidates Mick Cornett and Kevin Stitt each raised more than $1 million from people and special interest groups in a two-month period this summer, according to reports filed this week.

Drew Edmondson, who won the Democratic gubernatorial nomination on June 26, collected $512,000 in that same period. Total spending by 2018 gubernatorial candidates neared $16 million through Aug. 13.

The Republican nomination will be decided in the Aug. 28 runoff.
