Former U.S. Sen. Evan Bayh, who left the Senate two years ago, says he's keeping his options about his future as he holds onto most of his $10 million in campaign money.

Bayh has no publicly stated plans for using that cash beyond providing aid to other Democrats. But he tells The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., he's keeping his options open for his future. Bayh is currently an adviser for a Washington law firm.

Federal election filings show the Evan Bayh Committee reported $10.1 million on hand as of Sept. 30. Bayh's All America PAC reported more than $400,000 in its accounts.

Since filing those reports, Bayh has doled out campaign donations to the Indiana Democratic Party, Democratic Senate candidate U.S. Rep. Joe Donnelly and a few other Democrats.
