Bill Brady isn’t saying much yet about what he might do next after losing in the Republican primary for governor.

The state senator still has two years left on his term and says he will focus on that job first.  He is still involved in his family’s real estate development business. And they are also are opening a Jimmy John’s sandwich shop in Florida where they’ve long had a condominium.

Brady can’t yet say whether he might make a fourth bid for governor or a run at another higher office.
