Alabama Secretary of State Beth Chapman says she won't seek any position in next year's election and will take a sabbatical from elective office.

 

Chapman has served two terms in her current office and could not seek a third term. She had been mentioned as a contender for higher office, possibly including governor, but she said Tuesday she wants to take a break to pursue entrepreneurial ideas and business opportunities. She said she will support Republican Gov. Robert Bentley for re-election.

 

She served one term as state auditor before becoming secretary of state.
