The Senate district stretches across portions of Oklahoma City, Mustang and Valley Brook. Seven Republicans and two Democrats are vying to replace Republican former state Sen. Kyle Loveless, who resigned before pleading guilty to felony campaign finance violations.

The winners in each primary will meet in a special general election on Nov. 14.
