    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Former U.S. Rep. Mike Ross says he's considering seeking the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in Arkansas next year. 

    Ross told The Associated Press on Saturday that he's taking another look at running for the state's top office after Attorney General Dustin McDaniel, a Democrat, dropped out of the race earlier this year. Ross last year announced that he wouldn't seek the party's nomination for governor. 

    Ross said he's been humbled by supporters approaching him about a possible run after McDaniel dropped out over questions about an admitted extramarital relationship. Ross said he hoped to decide soon whether to join the race. 

    Former Lt. Gov. Bill Halter is the only announced Democratic candidate for governor. Former Congressman Asa Hutchinson and Little Rock businessman Curtis Coleman are seeking the GOP nomination.
