TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Four incumbents are not seeking re-election this year to the State Board of Education.

That creates the possibility of another shift in power between conservative Republicans and a coalition of moderate Republicans and Democrats.

The moderate coalition has a 6-4 majority.

Carol Rupe, a moderate Wichita Republican, has decided not to seek re-election. She said after eight years, she's served long enough.

Steve Abrams, a conservative Arkansas City Republican, filed Tuesday for a state Senate seat.

Also running for the Senate is Sue Gamble, a moderate Republican from Shawnee.

And Bill Wagnon, a Topeka Democrat, said in 2005 that he wouldn't run again this year.
