TOPEKA (AP) — Democratic Sen. Chris Steineger says he’s thinking about running for governor next year.

The Kansas City lawmaker said Tuesday that it will be two or three months before he makes a decision.

No other Democrat has expressed an interest in the job.

Democrat Gov. Kathleen Sebelius is in her second term and barred from seeking a third term.

Lt. Gov. Mark Parkinson has said he doesn’t want to run for governor. Some Democrats had viewed him as their party’s leading candidate.

On the Republican side, U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback, who isn’t seeking re-election, and Kansas Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh are running.
