RNC Chief: GOP Can Compete in Boren's District (Jun 09, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The head of the Republican National Committee says the decision by the only Democrat in Oklahoma's congressional delegation not to seek re-election will make the district competitive for the GOP.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus spoke Thursday in Oklahoma City where he met with Republican supporters and donors.

Priebus says the decision by four-term Democratic Rep. Dan Boren not to seek re-election next year will make his 2nd District competitive. Priebus says he thinks Republicans can be successful in the eastern Oklahoma district.

Boren announced Tuesday that he would not seek a fifth term in office in 2012. He says he's tired of campaigning and wants to spend more time with his family.

Boren's predecessor, former Democratic Rep. Brad Carson, says he plans to run for the seat next year.
