RENO, Nev. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Mark Amodei says he won’t run for the U.S. Senate next year, but he hasn’t ruled out a race for governor or attorney general in 2018.

The Nevada Republican says while he’s committed to running for re-election in 2016, he “would prefer to be back home in Nevada.”

Amodei told the Reno Gazette-Journal (https://on.rgj.com/1Py3roA ) he thinks he could be a competitive candidate for governor or attorney general and his experience in state government would be a plus.

The 56-year-old attorney from Carson City served in both houses of the state Legislature before being elected to Congress over Democrat Kate Marshall in a 2011 special election.

Gov. Brian Sandoval is barred from seeking a third term in 2018 because of term limits.

U.S. Sen. Harry Reid has announced he won’t seek re-election in 2016.
