Newsmaker Interview Dr. Trita Parsi

Featured in Top Stories

While the economy is considered the top issue in the presidential campaign this year, another big concern is looming: Iran. The U.S. has imposed economic sanctions on Iran to hurt that country's economy in an effort to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons. Fear over instability in the region has pushed oil prices higher in recent weeks, but there is also the concern of war. Dr. Trita Parsi is an expert on U.S.-Iranian relations and author of a new book on U.S. diplomacy with Iran, called "a single roll of the dice." Dr. Parsi gave a lecture on the topic at Oklahoma City University this week.

ONR Extra Election Polling

Featured in ONR Extras

Oklahoma's presidential preference primary election is on March 6th, Super Tuesday. Forty-three delegates are at stake in the republican primary, and recent polling by Sooner Poll puts former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum far in front of Newt Gingrich, with Mitt Romney in third and Ron Paul a distant fourth. The poll also showed that Santorum has the highest favorability, but is rated even with Romney as the candidate most favored in the general election. Sooner Poll brought together three political experts to discuss the latest poll results, and here's some of their analysis in this ONR Extra.

Health Care Exchange Bill

Featured in Top Stories

Legislation to create an Oklahoma health care exchange is on its way to the full senate. Senate Bill 1629 only partially complies with the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and intentionally violates the federal requirement that individuals who purchase health insurance be allowed to access federal subsidies through the exchange. Supporters of the bill believe it is necessary to prevent the federal government from setting up an exchange in Oklahoma. But it's a matter that ultimately will be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.
