Judging by this post on Facebook, former state Sen. Gene Roebuck, a Jonesboro insurance man, is going to seek the Senate seat opened by Paul Bookout's resignation.

I just wanted to thank everyone for the outpouring of confidence, prayers and support. I could never return the many calls, letters, and emails I have received. I am so thankful to have each and everyone of you. I have decided to run 100%. I have planted both feet in the campaign and am running 100% for this district. Thanks seems so small but again THANKS!

Roebuck, 78, was elected to a four-year term in the Senate in 1996, but was defeated in the Democratic primary in 2000 by Claud Cash.

Steve Rockwell previously announced as a Democratic candidate. The date of the special primary might be set by the governor by the end of this week.
