GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) - Defeated Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore is opening the door to a possible return to politics.

Moore told reporters at a news conference Monday that he doesn't plan to run for anything, including governor at this time.

But Moore issued a statement Thursday saying plans change. It quotes Moore as saying he won't be reluctant to seek office again "if the opportunity arises." And he says that includes the governorship.

The Republican Moore lost the Senate race to Democrat Doug Jones after women came forward claiming Moore made sexual advances on them years ago when he was in his 30s and they were teenagers.

Moore denies wrongdoing, and he's filed suit claiming to be the victim of a conspiracy. One of Moore's accusers is suing him for defamation.
