Oklahoma Primary Results

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - This fall's race for Oklahoma governor will feature two women at the top of the ticket.

Lt. Gov. Jari Askins defeated Attorney General Drew Edmonson on Tuesday. The attorney general conceded in a late-night speech that he would not make up the slim margin Askins held as the final votes are counted.

Askins will face Republican congresswoman Mary Fallin in the Nov. 2 general election. Askins and Edmondson each gave up relatively safe seats in an effort to keep the governor's seat in Democratic hands.

Gov. Brad Henry is term-limited and cannot seek a third term.  Edmondson said he would work to help Askins in the fall, saying it was important for the Democratic Party to be unified. Oklahoma

Democrats lost control of the state Legislature in 2008.
