OKLAHOMA CITY Talking to Red Dirt Report from his campaign RV, now parked in Tulsa, anti-abortion activist Randall Terry, who was on Oklahomas Democratic primary ballot, was excited about getting 18 percent of the vote and likely qualifying for as many as two delegates.
I beat (Obama) in 12 counties. They were in the west and the south and I took the entire Panhandle, Terry said.
In all, Obama lost 15 out of Oklahomas 77 counties, according to the Associated Press.
Terry was among three other lesser-known Democratic presidential candidates to qualify and appear on Tuesdays primary ballot. By the end of Tuesday, Obama had won 57 percent of the vote while the other candidates split up the remaining 43 percent, leaving Terry with an impressive 18 percent.

If you live in a state where Romney is definitely going to win anyway, then all you Newt, Ron and Rick voters need to cross over, if its allowed, and vote for Randall Terry. The Dems have such low turnout, it’d be cool to see what happens if Terry wins a state.
Oklahoma does not have open primaries. If you are registered Republican you vote in the Republican primary, Democrat in the Democrat primary. If you are registered Independant you don’t vote in primaries.
Wait, what? Despite having basically no publicity, the other democrat presidential candidates still managed to pull 43% of the electorate against Obama?
