TULSA, Oklahoma -

Rogers, Mayes and Craig County voters chose to replace the current District Attorney Janice Steidley.

Matt Ballard won the Republican primary and will face Democrat Robert Post in the fall.

"People want leaders to focus on doing the job they were put in office for and for the DA's office, that job is prosecuting crime and I want to focus on that and get rid of the chaos and dysfunction and focus on doing their job," Ballard said.
