Coburn Will Resign Early

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) will resign after the current session of Congress, foregoing the final two years of his term, The Oklahoman reports.

Roll Call: "Coburn had already pledged not to seek another term in the Senate come 2016, but his announcement Thursday will open the seat ahead of schedule. Coburn is waging a fourth battle with cancer, and people in the state have been aware that Coburn might give up the seat ahead of schedule. Oklahoma will need to hold a special election to fill the seat."
