Lawmaker may run for Cincinnati mayor.

A state lawmaker may run for Cincinnati mayor. State Senator Mark Mallory is scheduled to make an announcement tomorrow about his political future. The Democrat won't give more clues than that, but he's been considering for months whether to run for Cincinnati mayor. The incumbent, Democrat Charlie Luken, has indicated he will run for re-election next year. The Mallory name is politically established. The lawmaker's father -- William Mallory Senior -- is a former Ohio House majority leader. Mark's brother -- William Mallory Junior -- is a judge on the Hamilton County Municipal Court.
