The Oklahoma gubernatorial election of 1998 was held on November 3, 1998, and was a race for the Governor of Oklahoma.

Incumbent Republican Frank Keating won re-election in a landslide against Democratic State Representative Laura Boyd. The Reform Party, the first alternative party to be able to run a candidate for governor in the state since 1970, had Hoppy Heidelberg as its candidate.[1] Heidelberg was removed from a gubernatorial debate that he disrupted after not being allowed to be a participant.[2]






The election is significant for two reasons:

  • 1. It marked the first time a woman received the nomination for governor from a major party in Oklahoma.
  • 2. It marked the first time a Republican was elected to a consecutive term (Henry Bellmon was the first Republican to serve two terms, though not consecutive).
