Presidential primary field set as Oklahoma's filing closes

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Fourteen Democrats and six Republicans, including President Donald Trump, are set to appear on next year's Oklahoma presidential primary ballot after the state's three-day filing period closed.

Four more Democrats and one more Republican filed paperwork on Wednesday, while Sen. Kamala Harris of California formally withdrew her candidacy. Harris, who filed paperwork on Monday to appear on the ballot in in Oklahoma, abruptly ended her White House bid on Tuesday, citing fundraising difficulties.

Democratic candidates who filed Wednesday were: Michael Bennet of Colorado, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Marianne Williamson of California and Julián Castro of Texas. Republican Joe Walsh of Washington, D.C. also filed Wednesday.

No Libertarian candidates filed for Oklahoma's primary.

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt filed candidacy papers on Tuesday for President Trump.

Oklahoma votes next year as part of the March 3 “Super Tuesday” primaries.

Democrat Bernie Sanders and Republican Ted Cruz each won their party’s nomination in Oklahoma’s 2016 presidential primary election.
