NORTH TEXAS (CBS 11 NEWS) – Former Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison is dismissing a report that mentioned her as a potential Transportation Secretary during President Obama’s second term.

The report came from “The Hill” on Thursday. While in Congress Hutchison was a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee’s Transportation, Housing and Urban Development subcommittee and was a member of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee.

Friday, a spokeswoman said Senator Hutchison would not consider a cabinet position of any kind, and that she’s looking forward to a career in the private sector.

Hutchison retired from the Senate this month, after serving for 19 years.
