State Senate leader Darrell Steinberg may be considering a run for Sacramento Mayor. The Pro Tem tells "The Bee" that there doesn't appear to be a statewide office he's interested in running in for 2014...adding that he hasn't made any firm decisions and that he's friends with Mayor Kevin Johnson.

Johnson's term is up in 2016 and while he hasn't discussed the possibility of running again, he has said that he does not want any job that would require him to leave Sacramento. Steinberg previously opened a campaign account to run for lieutenant governor in 2018.
