    Ah thanks. I was hoping there was some sort of data out there that I couldn't find. I was hoping for some sort of county breakdowns or more specifics.

    Agree, its because no one is social distancing be it at bars, restaurants, church activities or large backyard parties. I love attending church activities but with the current situation, its better to stay at home if your church doesn't social distance or you don't feel comfortable with the situation. Same with the other activities.

    He's been far and away the best mayor Tulsa has had in a long time. He should be easily reelected regardless of the fact that he allowed the rally to happen. Not allowing the president to speak probably would've had a much more negative effect on his reelection. But given that the surge was happening well before the rally and that only 6K people showed up (who knows how many were actually from the Tulsa area itself) and that no one is singling out the rally as the sole cause...I don't it will have any effect on his chances of reelection one way or another.

    I wonder if he will bring up his color coded county plan? Whatever happened with that?

    National chains are asking governors to provide consistency on messaging because their employees are bearing the brunt of the public rage. It's not fair on the hourly workers to have constant battles with shoppers on masks or other protocols. And it's not fair on shoppers to try to guess the rules depending on what county, or state, they are eating or shopping or working in.

    How much would that help anyway?

    Everyone knows the most cases are in Tulsa, OKC, Norman, Stillwater and Guymon.

    IMO it's just another graphic way of trying to deflect the seriousness of the disease.

    We will have to disagree here. He probably will be re-elected but he totally went against his “data driven” approach to governing. Not only did the data say it was a bad idea, so did the medical experts and scientists he said he is listening to, not to mention common sense. I have lost all respect for him.

    1000x this! Even between cities here in the metro - places actually in OKC city limits have Edmond addresses (and I'm sure there are other examples of other cities), so things are massively confusing and inconsistent.

    And retail workers shouldn't be expected to be police/front-line workers making sure that mask guidelines/mandates are enforced. No, I don't have a solution, but if I was a min wage sales person at a Skechers store, I sure didn't sign up for that kind of stuff (getting things thrown at me and verbally abused, with the possibility of physical abuse).

    We can definitely agree that it would've been better from a health perspective to have the rally outside or not at all. As far as reelection goes, I just feel like the totality of his work (and even the way he's handled the virus outside of allowing the Trump rally) should be taken into account over a single situation in which he was put between a rock and a Trump place.

    Edmond, Broken Arrow and Jenks have more cases than Stillwater.
