Republican Rep. Steve King has has indicated that he is considering a challenge to Democratic incumbent Chet Culver in next year’s race for governor of Iowa. And while King told CQ Politics Thursday morning that the matter isn’t on his mind when he goes to sleep at night, he left the door open to the possibility.

“No decision has been made,” King said in an interview at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

The adjournment of the state legislature’s annual session — which will start the run-up to the state’s 2010 election season in earnest — just occured on Sunday, and King said he’s going to “let the dust settle.”
