UPDATE: Gant won't seek second term
The state's top elections official has announced he will not seek a second term.
In a letter to the editor received Wednesday by The Daily Republic, Secretary of State Jason Gant said he plans to return to the private sector after his current term is up at the end of 2014, rather than run for re-election in the November 2014 general election. Gant, a Republican, took office in 2011.
