Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley says she’s focused on her day job, but wouldn’t rule out a future run for governor or U.S. Senate.

Coakley told reporters Thursday she feels very lucky to be attorney general even as speculation swirls about other political contests, including the 2014 governor’s race or  another special Senate election if Sen. John Kerry is appointed to an Obama cabinet post.

Coakley, a Democrat, said right now she’s thinking about her next two years and potentially running for attorney general again.

But Coakley, who lost a 2010 special Senate election to Republican Scott Brown, also said every race is different and if Kerry’s seat opens up she’ll decide whether to rule out a campaign then.

Coakley made the comments at a meeting of the Massachusetts Newspaper Publishers Association on Thursday. (Associated Press)
