State Senator Betty Little confirmed yesterday that she won't seek the North Country's House seat.  The Republican from Queensbury says she intends to run again for the state senate.

“My focus right now is on the State Senate,” Little said. “I had planned and continue to plan to run for reelection,  and we’re just starting this year’s session. Looking back I had a very successful year last year, and hope to again this year.”

According to published reports, Republicans are looking for other candidates to run for the 21st district seat, now that Democrat Bill Owens has announced that he won't seek another term.

But Little is the latest A-list Republican to pass on the race.  Warren County district attorney Kate Hogan announced last week that she won't run.

Currently, the top name on the GOP slate is Elise Stefanik, a former White House aide who moved to Essex County last year.

Democrats, too, are scrambling to find a candidate for what is expected to be one of the fiercest congressional races in New York.
