District Attorney R. Seth Williams is expected to announce this morning that he will not run for reelection.
The city's first African American District Attorney, elected in 2009, will say that he's decided not to run for a third-term in the May primary against five already declared opponents, with probably more on the way.
The D.A. has called a 10 a.m. press conference at his office to make an "important announcement." Several sources have confirmed that's he's going to say that he's not running. And that Williams is trying to get out ahead of a possible federal indictment that may be coming in the next two weeks.
