OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Senate Democratic Leader Sean Burrage says he won't run for re-election next year.

The Democrat from Claremore says he wants to focus his attention on his family and legal career. Burrage has served in the Oklahoma Senate since 2006, and went unchallenged in his re-election bid in 2010.

In November 2011, he was elected Senate Democratic leader. Burrage would have been term-limited in 2018 had he run for re-election next year.

Burrage has a law practice in Claremore. He says he looks forward to attending more high school basketball games and fewer committee meetings.
