Mick Cornett's finish atop the crowded GOP field for governor on Tuesday came after big wins in three of the four Oklahoma counties with the most registered Republicans.

The three, Oklahoma, Cleveland and Canadian Counties, are Cornett's home turf — the Oklahoma City media market where his 14 years as mayor followed nearly two decades on local television as a sports reporter and anchor.

Cornett got 46 percent of his statewide total in those three counties. He beat Tulsa businessman Kevin Stitt by about 31,000 votes in the three counties and Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb by almost 33,000 votes.
