Dan Boren decides not to run for Oklahoma governor in 2018

The Associated Press - November 29, 2016 12:13 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A former four-term Democratic congressman from one of Oklahoma’s most well-known political families has decided not to run for the state’s open governor seat in 2018.
Dan Boren told The Associated Press that he opted against entering the campaign after spending the past year visiting with civic and business leaders across the state about a potential run.
Boren’s father, University of Oklahoma President David Boren, is a former Oklahoma governor and U.S. senator.
The 43-year-old Boren says he intends to continue working on business development for the Chickasaw Nation and spend time with his two children, ages 6 and 9. He says he still has a strong desire for public service and that he likely will run for office again in the future.
Oklahoma’s current Republican Gov. Mary Fallin is term-limited.
