LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Curtis Coleman, the founder of a food safety company and an unsuccessful candidate for the U.S. Senate last year, says he's considering a run for the Republican gubernatorial nomination in Arkansas in 2014.

Coleman says he'll meet Monday with supporters about a potential run but that he likely won't make a final decision until the middle of 2013.

The 63-year-old Coleman is the founder of Safe Foods and ran for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate last year. John Boozman won the nomination in the primary and beat Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln.

Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe is serving his second term and is barred by term limits from running again. Coleman is one of several potential candidates eyeing the open seat.
