Republican U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk is still deciding what office he wants to run for in next year's election.

Is it U.S. senator, governor or a sixth term in Congress?

Kirk wasn't saying Monday. But he said he's raising money for a "big campaign." He wants to assess next year's races before deciding.

The northern Illinois congressman said the state can do better than Gov. Pat Quinn and U.S. Sen. Roland Burris, both Democrats.

Neither Quinn nor Burris were elected to their posts. Quinn replaced ousted former Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Burris replaced President Barack Obama. Burris was appointed by Blagojevich before lawmakers removed him from office.

Newly divorced, Kirk is serving his fifth term in Congress from Illinois' 10th Congressional District.
