Mitchell not ruling out 2014 run yet

Mahlon Mitchell, the head of the state firefighters union who ran for lt. guv in last year's recalls, said he has not ruled out a run next year.

But he said he's not sure whether the timing will be right next year for a run and declined to say what office he would seek if he got in.

"I will one day," he said of another run. "It's all about timing. Politics is all about timing. I just don't like what's happening in our state."

Mitchell said he's now focused on the members of the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin and said his family is still not ready for another run after the recall election last year.

Mitchell was scheduled to give just a five-minute speech, but went well beyond that, and some in the crowd took it as a sign he has plans to run again.

"Tom Barrett once told me if they give you a microphone, speak as long as you want," Mitchell said.
