OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Three more Democrats and four more Republicans, including President Donald Trump, filed statements of candidacy Tuesday, the second of the state’s three-day filing period for the 2020 Oklahoma primaries.

Oklahoma’s Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt, a businessman-turned-politician endorsed by Trump last year, filed the paperwork for the Trump campaign at the state Election Board.

Filing will continue until 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Democrats for whom paperwork was filed Tuesday were Joseph Biden, Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer.

In addition to President Trump, Republicans who filed Tuesday were “Rocky” De La Fuente, Matthew Matern and Bob Ely.

Oklahoma votes next year as part of the March 3 “Super Tuesday” primaries.

Democrat Bernie Sanders and Republican Ted Cruz each won their party’s nomination in Oklahoma’s 2016 presidential primary election.
