Ala. Sen Myron Penn Won't Run Again
Union Springs, AL – The chairman of the state Senate Judiciary Committee, Democrat Myron Penn of Union Springs, says he won't run for another term next year.
The two-term senator said Tuesday he wants to devote more time to his law practice and his family.
Two Democrats have announced for Penn's seat: former Tuskegee Mayor Johnny Ford and Democratic state Rep. Billy Beasley of Clayton. Penn said others are considering entering the race, and he expects to endorse someone later.
The primary election to fill Penn's seat will be in June.
