OKLAHOMA CITY — Eight Democrats and one Republican filed on Monday for Oklahoma’s presidential primaries. Among those to file on the first of three days was U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who won Oklahoma’s Democratic primary in 2016.

The only Republican to file on the first day was Zoltan Istvan, who describes himself as a “transhumanist” who is “yearning to use science, technology, and reason to dramatically remake humanity.”

Democrats have a large field of candidates vying for the nomination to take on President Donald Trump next year. Some hopefuls have already dropped out. Early contests in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina will likely narrow the field further.
