DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Former State Senator Terry Gipson is throwing his hat back into the political ring.
Gipson, a Rhinebeck resident, announced he intends to run against Senator Sue Serino in the 41st Senate District and win back the seat he lost to Serino in 2014. The 41st Senate District covers parts of Putnam and Dutchess counties.
The former senator was elected to the seat in 2012, defeating Stephen Saland and Neil Di Carlo in a three-way race. Gipson and Franklin Roosevelt are the only Democrats to hold the seat over the last 100 years.
Gipson said he plans to make a formal announcement at the end of April, according to the Poughkeepsie Journa l.
