Michael Bates of Batesline and other Tulsa conservative bloggers have been promoting Medlock for weeks, an effort that included attacks on Bartlett as insufficiently conservative to be a true Republican.
It didn't work. Bartlett received 5,000 more votes than Medlock, with Falling nearly 10,000 votes further down. Despite all their noise, conservative bloggers and their allies remain a political minority in Tulsa.
The Tulsa World reported these vote totals Tuesday night:
Dewey Bartlett Jr.: 12,061
Chris Medlock: 7,004
Anna Falling: 2,178
