[Photograph 2012.201.OVZ001.7725]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "A jubilant Raymond Gary told his supports early Wednesday morning he is confident of victory in the gubernatorial primary. "Our lead will be sufficent to win regardless of who is in the runoff with us," he told about 250 boosters in his Sheraton Oklahoma Hotel campaign headquarters. Gary said he was not worried about who he will face in the runoff May 24. "I feel confident we'll be in the runoff, but a victory will not be easy, a victory never comes easy for me," Gary said before his position was cinched. He predicted he would have substantial lead, "but no as much as we'd hoped for." Gary said he didn't do as well in the two big cities as "we thought we should." The former governor said many Gary votes were bieng given to Cleeta John Rogers. "The same kind of people vote for Cleeta John who vote for me." he said. Supporters gathered in the hotel's Oklahoma Room remained relatively calm as returns were reorded on a blackboard by Gary's son-in-law Dale Waymeyer."
