Unconfirmed! But WXPI is teasing this so obviously we had to put it up on the blog. Huge news for Bill Peduto if true:
Target 11 has confirmed through sources that Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl is questioning running for re-election.
Channel 11′s Rick Earle said an announcement may come as soon as Thursday.
Two sources from inside city hall told Earle that Ravenstahl has told people close to him that he won’t seek re-election. Target 11 is still working to confirm the details with Ravenstahl himself.
Ravenstahl, 33, of Summer Hill, who officially announced his re-election bid last Tuesday night before about 200 supporters at his new campaign headquarters in the Strip District, said he planned to continue policies that he began when he took office in 2006 after the death of Mayor Bob O’Connor.
