Nebraska state Sen. Pete Pirsch of Omaha is "strongly considering" a run for state auditor in the 2014 election. He said Thursday he planned to make a decision soon.

Pirsch believes he would fit well into the job because of his experience as a lawmaker who has worked on state tax policy and government efficiency.

Nebraska's current state auditor, Mike Foley, is running for governor.

Pirsch visited Grand Island's Husker Harvest Days on Thursday and has been traveling to other towns in the state. Pirsch, a Republican, was elected to the Legislature in 2006 and re-elected four years later. He is ineligible to run again because of term limits.

Pirsch said he would continue his focus on government efficiency if elected.
