VITAL STATISTICS ON OKLAHOMA POLITICS

J. Michael Sharp, Gary W. Copeland

Abstract


This section of Oklahoma Politics presents Oklahoma political data of interest to teachers and scholars. Here we examine the results of a survey of candidates for the state legislature conducted by the Carl Albert Center at the University of Oklahoma. The principle investigators are Gary Copeland, Jonathan Mott, and J. David Rausch. The survey was conducted as part of an on-going project with a primary interest in how and when term limitations begin to influence the decisions and career calculations of the politically ambitious in our state. Conducted in the Fall of 1992, the survey respondents were among the first group of candidates who ran for state legislative office knowing that they would be affected by term limitations.
