The state's Republican voters weigh-in with who they hope will face Governor Brad Henry in November.

Our latest Oklahoma Poll with the Tulsa World shows 7-term US congressman Ernest Istook leading the pack for the Republican nomination, with 44 percent of the vote.

As for the other candidates, Tulsa state senator James Williamson gets 7 percent, and oilman Bob Sullivan is right behind with 6 percent. Plenty of Republican voters have yet to commit to a candidate. 43 percent were undecided.

If the election were held today, and Congressman Istook were challenging Brad Henry for governor. Most voters, 58 percent, say they'd go with Governor Brad Henry. 31 percent of likely voters chose Istook and another 11 percent were undecided.
