Texas senator won't seek a fourth term

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison said Tuesday she will not seek re-election after her Senate term and is weighing other options, which could include a bid for Texas governor.

"I was honest in the (2006) campaign that it was my intention to not go beyond this last term, third term," said Hutchison of Texas. "I know every other option is certainly available, but I don't intend to run for a fourth term."

She said running for Texas governor in 2010 is one option, but she has not made a decision.
