OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A Republican state legislator from Claremore says he plans to run for a Senate seat being vacated by Democratic state Sen. Sean Burrage.

Rep. Marty Quinn announced Wednesday his plans to run for the seat in Rogers and Mayes counties. Burrage announced earlier this week his plans to leave the Senate after his current term ends to spend more time at his home in Claremore.

Elected to the House in 2010, Quinn runs an insurance company in Rogers County.

Republicans currently hold a 36-12 advantage over Democrats in the Senate.
