OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Republican state Sen. Clark Jolley of
Edmond says he's not running for state attorney general.
Jolley said Friday he plans to remain in the Senate and continue
serving as assistant majority floor leader in the GOP's majority
caucus. Jolley is serving his second four-year term in the Senate
and says he plans to seek re-election in 2012.
Jolley says he is not willing to neglect his duties as a state
senator in order to mount a successful statewide campaign.
Longtime Democratic Attorney General Drew Edmondson is not
seeking re-election and is running for governor this year. Two
other Republicans, Ryan Leonard and former state Sen. Scott Pruitt,
have announced plans to run for attorney general. A Democrat, Jim
Priest, is also running.
