When the self-professed “Republican Workhorse” announced last month that he’d be trotting voluntarily into the Congressional glue factory, we took him at his word.

After all, he looked utterly disinterested in winning reelection in 2008 and he actually faced even more spirited competition in the GOP primary this year.

But the Post and Courier is reporting that the workhorse may have a few more miles in him.

That includes a possible bid for Berkeley County supervisor.

“He has a political future,” said Brown’s political consultant, Rod Shealy, while stopping short of confirming the buzz around the supervisor race. “A lot of people are talking to him about different things. He’s considering everything. It’s not out of the question but it’s not frontline.”

The P&C story quickly gets to a possible motivation here: there’s a nice paycheck. But there are also a slew of other potential candidates and Andy Paras does his best to track them down and get their feedback.
