Asa Hutchinson Considering Options with Bush Administration

NOVEMBER 11, 2004 - Posted at 4:22 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Former Arkansas Congressman Asa Hutchinson says he is considering his options for further service in the Bush administration, or in the private sector, now that the president has won a second term.

Hutchinson became a nationally-recognized figure as a House manager during Bill Clinton's impeachment over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.  He left his Third District seat to run the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration under President Bush, and now is undersecretary for Homeland Security.

He says he will meet with White House officials and friends in Arkansas to decide on what his next role will be.

The 53-year-old Hutchinson is in charge of border and transportation security, duties he began in January 2003.  Hutchinson says that returning to Arkansas at some point is also part of his plans.
