More information to come later today. I will try to attend this announcement this afternoon to get more details about Boren's decision.
WASHINGTON — Rep. Dan Boren, the only Democrat in Oklahoma's congressional delegation, plans to announce Tuesday that he won't seek reelection in 2012, leaving open his seat that spans much of eastern Oklahoma.
A source close to Boren said he will make an official announcement at 2 p.m. in his hometown of Muskogee.
Former Oklahoma Congressman Brad Carson said Tuesday that he would run for the seat he held just before Boren won it in 2004. Carson, a professor at the University of Tulsa, gave up the seat to run for the U.S. Senate. Carson lost to Sen. Tom Coburn.
