ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Anoka Republican Jim Abeler says he won’t seek re-election to his House seat as he focuses on running for U.S. Senate.

Abeler, 59, a chiropractor by trade, is among several Republicans seeking to unseat Democratic Sen. Al Franken.

Others include state Sen. Julianne Ortman, businessman Mike McFadden and St. Louis County Commissioner Chris Dahlberg.

Abeler said he may run in the GOP primary if he fails to win his party’s endorsement.
