A spokeswoman says Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius isn't reconsidering her decision not to seek a job in Washington.

Sebelius said a month ago that she was taking herself out of consideration for a position in President-elect Barack Obama's Cabinet. She cited the state's budget problems.

But New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson has withdrawn as Obama's choice for commerce secretary because of a federal investigation into how his political donors landed a lucrative transportation contract.

That led to some speculation about Sebelius.

But Sebelius spokeswoman Nicole Corcoran said Monday: "She stands firmly by her decision" to drop out of consideration for the Cabinet.
