I am running a comma delimited extract in Oracle using sql.  Some of the data has double quotes or single quotes and i do not want those to show up in the extract.  How do i ask Oracle to pull the text with out the quote.  Here is an example of the data in the DESCRIPTION field:

DESCRIPTION
Run Off Election for '8/2/2011 - Primary Election'
