Tea Party Wins Again

Reports of the Tea Party's demise were greatly exaggerated. 
“I’ve never had a race like this in all my life,” Sullivan told the Associated Press a few days ago. “The only mistake I made was I ignored it for too long.”

The 1st district, which includes Tulsa, is a solid GOP seat that only incurred minimal changes in redistricting. The district voted for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) with 64 percent in 2008. Bridenstine will be the next Member representing this seat in all likelihood.

Sullivan is the eighth House Member to lose a primary this cycle, although four of those have lost to another Member in a race created by redistricting.
