Childers wins Senate District 43 primary, advances to Oct. 11 election

Clifton Adcock August 10th, 2011

Republican voters in Senate District 43 chose candidate Greg Childers (pictured) over Theresa Nelson in Tuesday night’s primary election.

Childers raked in around 58.4 percent of the 1,553 votes cast, and will now face Moore Democratic candidate Kenneth Meador, who was unchallenged in the primary election, during the Oct. 11 general election.
The District 43 seat opened up after a term-limited Republican Sen. Jim Reynolds, who successfully ran in November for the position of Cleveland County treasurer.

Senate District 43 covers part of eastern Oklahoma County and goes into northern Cleveland County, encompassing parts of Oklahoma City, Del City, all of Valley Brook and part of Moore. As a result of this year’s redistricting, it will shift far to the south in November to include all of McClain County, most of Stephens County and parts of Grady and Garvin counties.

Childers, 41, formerly worked at Norman’s postal training center for 20 years and taught classes at the University of Oklahoma for the past eight years.
