Sen. Lerblance Declines Re-Election Bid (Jan 30, 2012)

HARTSHORNE, Okla. (AP) - A southern Oklahoma legislator has decided not to seek re-election.

According to a story in the Tulsa World (, state Sen. Richard Lerblance, D-Hartshorne, announced over the weekend that under the present leadership, he believes it's time to let someone else be the voice of Senate District 7.

Republicans control the governor's office and the Legislature.

Lerblance was elected to the House in 2002 and then the Senate in 2003 for a one-year term. He was re-elected to the Senate in 2004 and 2008.

Term limits would only allow Lerblance to serve two years if he were re-elected this year.

He says it's in the best interest of the district to not have a special election in 2014 for someone to run for the remaining two years of his term.
