Former Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman says he's thinking about running for governor.
"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," he wrote in a statement, posted on his website. "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."
