Yesterday's Burlington Hawkeye had a story that Gene Fraise will not seek re-election in 2012:
Sen. Fraise is 79 years old, and he has been in the Senate for 26 years. Before that, he was a Lee County Supervisor. Fraise has been known for his work on criminal justice and education.
One Repulican has announced that he will run for this seat – Lee County Supervisor Larry Kruse.
