OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Republican Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb has won a second four-year term as the state’s second-in-charge.

Lamb defeated Democrat Cathy Cummings in Tuesday’s election.

Lamb, a former state senator, stressed job creation and job expansion as he campaigned for re-election. Lamb serves as the small business advocate on Gov. Mary Fallin’s cabinet. Lamb says he has been a team member in an economic development effort that has been a national leader in job growth and produced an unemployment rate consistently below the national average.

A former special agent with the U.S. Secret Service, Lamb chaired the Oklahoma School Security Commission formed after a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at a school in Connecticut in December 2012. The commission’s work led to legislation designed to make Oklahoma schools safer.
