Former Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman is considering a run for governor — or possibly some other elected office — in 2014.
The Republican has created a Facebook paged dedicated to his potential gubernatorial candidacy, and his representative sent a prepared statement to The Arizona Republic about a possible run.
“Over the next few months, I will be traveling the state of Arizona to speak with and listen to people from all walks of life about what’s really important to them in their state government, and how we can address our priorities successfully,” Hallman’s statement said. “At that time, I will make a final decision about pursuing elected office. I have one particular elected office very clearly in mind — the office of Governor of Arizona.”
The Democrats’ leading gubernatorial contenders include state Rep. Chad Campbell, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and former Arizona Board of Regents Chairman Fred DuVal.
