Kibbie did not seek re-election in 2012. He officially tendered her resignation, effective January 1, 2013, on February 1, 2012. Due to redistricting Kibbie was drawn into the same district as David Johnson (R), who was last elected in 2010 and not up for re-election until 2014. Thus, if Kibbie had not resigned, Johnson would have had to stand for re-election two years before the expiration of his term.
