DescriptionFormer Gov. Chet Culver said he's settled into his role as a business consultant to renewable energy companies and has moved on with his life, but he wouldn't rule out a run for public office.

"I feel really good about the fact that I've found something to do that I'm passionate about," Culver said in an interview with The Associated Press. "During any transition like this it can be tough, and the challenge can be compounded if you can't really figure out what you're going to do."

After leaving office in January following his loss to Republican Terry Branstad in the November election, Culver said he explored a series of options. He finally settled on forming the Culver Group, a consulting business that advises alternative energy companies on business strategies.

"I took a few months and looked at a lot of really exciting options," said Culver. "I feel really good about the decision I made to start this small business. I kind of like being an entrepreneur."

There are persistent rumors that Culver will eventually return to Washington, where he grew up while his father was in Congress. Culver chuckles at that suggestion.

"This is home," said Culver. "The kids are very happy with their school. We kept our home in West Des Moines."
