President Donald Trump's one-time nominee to serve as secretary of the Army hinted Friday at potentially running for Congress while ending his campaign for governor.

Tennessee State Sen. Mark Green posted a lengthy statement regarding his future plans on his social media handles, saying he and his wife are looking at ways to improve America from the nation's capital.

Story continues below tweet.

"My mission is the conservative cause, not a position," Green said. "The very difficult task of electing a true conservative to be the 50th governor of Tennessee when the vote will clearly be split among several candidates, harms that cause. For that reason, I will not be resuming my campaign for governor.

"I will instead look to Washington, D.C. to help serve our country and provide real help to President Trump. Several options exist in the near future to do this and I will continue discussions with people around the state and Washington as I find the best path of service."

Trump nominated Green to serve in the Pentagon but he withdrew his name last month after he was criticized for past comments on gay marriage, transgender bathroom rights, and including Islam on public school curriculums.
