Dewhurst Plans Just One More Term

AUSTIN (January 16, 2014) After 11 years on the job, Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst says he plans to serve only one more term if re-elected in November.

Dewhurst told The Associated Press he thinks he’ll return to business full time to make back some of the millions of dollars he's spent on campaigns through the years.

The Republican businessman used about $25 million of his personal fortune on a failed U.S. Senate bid in 2012 and spent millions more on five previous statewide campaigns.

"I'm leaner today than when I started in politics. I need to go back and earn some money,” he told the AP.
