What’s next for Bill White?

Not a campaign.

In the nearly two weeks since his decisive loss to Gov. Rick Perry, he’s had time to begin planning a family Christmas trip to a yet-to-be-decided Spanish-speaking country, to indulge his penchant for exploring new and interesting businesses and to begin thinking about what he wants to do next. He also has time to think about what might have been.

For now, he said, about the only thing he knows about his future is what he doesn’t plan to do. He is not running for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Kay Bailey Hutchison.

“I’m not running in 2012,” he said, relaxing on the couch in a sunlit den in the White home overlooking woods bordering Buffalo Bayou. He also said he has no plans to try again for the Governor’s Office or for a Senate seat in 2014, when Republican Sen. John Cornyn faces re-election. He looks forward to getting back into business, he said.

Good news for John Sharp. I do hope that White stays involved – Lord knows, we could use his fundraising ability all across the ticket – but I’ll certainly understand if this was his last election. BOR has more.
