TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris has announced that he will not seek re-election in 2014. Harris said in a statement Monday that after prayer and reflection, he decided not to run again. His term will end on Dec. 31, 2014. He has not ruled out running for other offices though. He said he is putting together an exploratory team to vet future opportunities in public service, law, business, education and ministry. Harris has been a prosecutor in Tulsa County for more than 27 years and served 15 years as the district attorney for the state's second-largest city. Harris thanked the citizens of Tulsa for allowing him to serve.
