 OK State Election Board




Notes: 
Sen. James Inhofe (R), first elected to the U.S. Senate in a Nov. 8, 1994 special election, had little difficulty winning a fourth full term, trouncing Matt Silverstein (D), an investment advisor from Bixby (Tulsa), as well as independents Joan Farr, Ray Woods, and Aaron DeLozier.

In addition to his experience in the Senate, Ihofe previously served in the House, as Tulsa Mayor and in the state legislature.  He was approaching 80 years old and had undergone quadruple bypass surgery in Oct. 2013.  Silverstein, who describes himself as a Jewish Choctaw, was more than four decades Inhofe's junior, and had not run for office. 

In the June 24 primaries, Silverstein was unopposed, and  Inhofe tallied 87.68% of the vote.  In the general election, Inhofe refused to debate Silverstein.  The race was not financially competitive; the Inhofe campaign had a $5.1 warchest and spent more than ten times as much as the Silverstein campaign.
