WASHINGTON -Jody M. Wagner plans to step down as Virginia's secretary of finance at the end of this week and go back to her home in Virginia Beach. While Wagner said she has no specific plans, sources said they expect her to run for lieutenant governor next year.

Gov. Timothy Kaine announced Wagner's plans to resign Friday. When asked about her intentions, Wagner would only say, "I'm assessing my options," and that she "certainly" wants to "continue to be involved in serving Virginia."
