Post election hangover in Oklahoma

With this historic election behind us, many Oklahoma voters are recovering from "post-election hangover".

It has nothing to do with drugs or alcohol, but the let-down after a bitter campaign season.

The News on 6 caught up with several voters in Creek County, where turnout was about 70%, the highest in 20 years. Some are pleased with Tuesday night's results, others, bitterly disappointed.

Creek County is mostly "Democrat", but Republicans made a clean sweep, from Sheriff, to the President. Sapulpa businessman Randy Wood says he's thrilled with the outcome, but this is no time to gloat.

All of the voters we spoke with Wednesday said they're glad the negative campaigning is over, regardless of the outcome.
