DALLAS - Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison made it official Monday that she will seek a third term in the Senate instead of challenging Gov. Rick Perry.

The 61-year-old senator said she wanted to stay in Washington to work on federal issues, such as homeland security and tax relief and to move up the Senate GOP leadership ladder.

Perry still faces a GOP challenge from state Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn, who announced her candidacy a week ago.
