Assistant District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler announced Thursday he will run to replace Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris, who said earlier this week he will not seek re-election.
Kunzweiler, who will run as a Republican, is the Chief of the Criminal Division.
Kunzweiler has been a prosecutor in Oklahoma for 24 years.
"As a career prosecutor myself, I have worked every day for the past 24 years to the best of my ability to protect the citizens of Oklahoma and seek justice. I want to be the next District Attorney for Tulsa County," Kunzweiler said.
