Holperin won?t seek re-election

State Senator Jim Holperin said Friday he would not run for re-election this fall.
“I’ve given this decision considerable thought, not just recently but over time,” he said. “Politics and legislating are fascinating and fulfilling work and I’ve enjoyed 20 years of it in the State Assembly, State Senate and as a cabinet secretary.
“I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything in the world, but now there are other things I want to do.
“Whatever success I’ve had politically I owe to the voters and to the thousands of supporters who worked so hard on my behalf over the years, and especially in last year’s recall. I’m so grateful for that support and I will always appreciate those who gave me the privilege of serving.”
