Sooner Tea Party's Council Candidates Defeated

The Sooner Tea Party's endorsed candidates in Tuesday's Oklahoma City Council elections lost.

Defeating Sooner Tea Party-backed candidates were incumbents Pat Ryan and Meg Salyer and challenger David Greenwell. Greenwell defeated Ward 5 incumbent Brian Walters by about 450 votes.

There will be a runoff election in April between Charlie Swinton, a senior banking officer, and Ed Shadid, a doctor, to decide who will succeed outgoing Ward 2 Councilman Sam Bowman.
