Gov. Linda Lingle announced plans to take six months off before deciding whether to run for the U.S. Senate in 2012.

The Republican governor, who leaves office Dec. 6 after two four-year terms, said she would then give serious consideration to a campaign against U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka. She also has said she would consider a role in national GOP politics.

Lingle raised a record $6 million in her re-election campaign in 2006. She likely would need to raise between $3 million and $6 million to take on Akaka, who would be expected to get national help from Democrats and labor unions.

The 86-year-old Akaka has said he intends to campaign for a fifth six-year term.
