The winning candidate in the Oklahoma special senatorial primary needed more than 50 percent of the vote to avoid a runoff, and it looks like Oklahoma Rep. James Lankford has 56 percent of the vote locked up.

The closest runner up by a wide margin is Tea Party favorite T.W. Shannon, who so far is commanding nearly 35 percent of the vote. The next closest challenger among the five remaining has only 5 percent of the vote.
