AUSTIN (AP) - 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 sees himself returning 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 millions more on five previous statewide campaigns.

Dewhurst tells the AP, “I’m leaner today than when I started in politics. I need to go back and earn some money.”
