By Nathan Elliott, News 9

A new poll reveals no clear front-runner in the Republican race for Oklahoma’s 5th District U.S. Representative seat, six weeks from the June 24 primary.

A News 9 survey of 671 likely Republican voters shows three candidates received double-digit support in the poll, including Corporation Commissioner Patrice Douglas (11.6 percent), state Sen. Clark Jolley (11.4 percent) and state Rep. Mike Turner (11.2 percent).

Three candidates had single-digit support, including former state Sen. Steve Russell (7.4 percent), former state Rep. Shane Jett (5.5 percent) and former congressional staff member Harvey Sparks (3.7 percent).

Nearly half, 49.1 percent, are still undecided, according to the poll.
