U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn said Tuesday that he still hasn't made a decision about seeking a second term in 2010.

"I'm not playing games," he said following a town hall at Tulsa Technology Center's Peoria campus. "I really haven't decided."

Close to 200 people attended the town hall. Health care, jobs and government spending were chief among the questions from the audience.

In response to one question, Coburn said, "I'm optimistic, not because of anything happening in Washington, but because of you people here."

Coburn has town halls scheduled throughout the eastern half of the state through the end of the week.
