Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar suggested for secretary of state or CIA director

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Outgoing Indiana U.S. Senator Richard Lugar has been suggested as possibly becoming the next secretary of state or even CIA director.

But a spokesman for Lugar says the reports "are without any forethought or knowledge."  He also says Lugar is likely to take a job outside the government.

The 80-year-old has been talking with several universities.  He hopes to take advantage of his long tenure as a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Lugar lost his bid for a seventh term in the Senate.  Democrat Joe Donnelly will replace him.
