Lansing Mayor will not seek another gubernatorial bid

LANSING (WKZO) -- Democrats will have to look somewhere other than Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero for their next gubernatorial candidate.

Bernero lost to Governor Rick Snyder in 2010, and says he will not run in 2014 for the office.  He told the "Lansing State Journal" that he'd rather not bring the "baggage" to the Democratic Party that running a candidate who has previously lost would bring.

No Democrats are yet in the running, and Governor Snyder hasn't indicated at this point if he will seek a second term.
