BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Vermont entertainer Rusty Dewees is contemplating his next step.

For the past 17-years, Dewees has been The Logger.  The character is pure Vermont -- with a quick wit and thick accent.  He's put on countless holiday shows and just wrapped up a tour entertaining inmates at Vermont prisons.  But Monday on The :30, Dewees told Kristin Carlson he's considering a new role.

Reporter Kristin Carlson: Would you ever thing of running for office in Vermont?  

Rusty Dewees:  Absolutely.  That's -- you know -- I'm searching.  If that's one of the things that can help.  It's about helping Vermonters -- as many as you can, as quickly as you can -- you know -- more specific ways than I am able to as The Logger, so that's definitely on the table. But it's not a thing that's the next step necessarily, but yes I would consider that for sure.

Dewees says he would consider running as an Independent. Off camera, he says if he were to run, he might be interested in a U.S. Congressional seat.
