U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler says he's not sure what the future holds for him after he leaves elected office in January.
Chandler told the Lexington Herald-Leader and The Courier-Journal that he hasn't made up his mind about what he'll do, but he has several options. Some of those include a possible appointment to a government position, lobbying or practicing law.
Chandler also didn't rule out another run for public office at some point in the future. But right now, he says he's looking forward to spending some time with his family at home in central Kentucky. Chandler has served as a congressman since 1994, but held state offices before that.
He is the grandson of A.B. "Happy" Chandler, a former governor and U.S. senator.
