    PIERRE, S.D. (AP) _ Former South Dakota U.S. Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin says she will not seek the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Tim Johnson.
 
    Herseth Sandlin announced her decision on her Facebook page Monday morning and confirmed it to The Associated Press. She says she wants to focus on her family and her job as an attorney and vice president for Raven Industries.
 
    Herseth Sandlin lost her first run for Congress in 2002 but won a special election in June 2004. She was later re-elected to three full terms in the U.S. House before losing a re-election bid in 2010 to Republican Kristi Noem.
 
    The only announced candidates for Johnson's seat are former Republican Gov. Mike Rounds and Democrat Rick Weiland, an ex-staffer for former Sen. Tom Daschle.
