As rumors swirled that U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler might step down from the congressional seat he’s held since 1997, the Boca Raton, Fla., Democrat said he will talk to reporters about his future plans Wednesday.

Wexler may be considering a “public policy position,” one source was quoted as saying in a Palm Beach Post political blog.

Wexler backed Barack Obama’s presidential bid early, when most of the Florida Democratic establishment supported Hillary Clinton. Since Obama’s election, there has been speculation Wexler might be in line for a plum appointment in the Obama administration.
