Coburn said his decision was not related to his battle with prostate cancer. Instead, he said he's a "citizen legislator," who was committed to serving no more than two terms in the Senate.

Several others, including Rep. James Lankford, Oklahoma House Speaker T.W. Shannon, have announced that they will also run for this open U.S. Senate seat.
