OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A Republican legislator who filed for an open Oklahoma Senate seat has withdrawn as a candidate.

Records from the state Election Board show Rep. Paul Wesselhoft of Moore withdrew from the race for the District 43 seat on Wednesday, the last day of a 3-day filing period. Wesselhoft initially filed on Monday.

The seat is being vacated by Republican Sen. Jim Reynolds, who is leaving July 1 to become the Cleveland County treasurer. Democrats Larry Foster of Del City and Kenneth Meador of Moore filed for the seat on Wednesday. Republicans Greg Childers of Del City and Theresa Nelson of Oklahoma City also have filed.

The primary election is set for Aug. 9 with a general election on Oct. 11. Reynolds' district includes parts of Oklahoma and Cleveland counties.
