MILWAUKEE - Will he or won't he run? Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke spoke openly at Marquette University that he's seriously considering a run for Milwaukee mayor.

"I will get some trusted advisers together and sit down.  You don't just jump into a race," Clarke said.
 
Clarke adds just because he's considering a different election position, doesn't mean he's automatically running for mayor.  He is running for re-election as sheriff.
 
Clarke has run as a Democrat, but considers himself a conservative.  He said he doesn't like being attached to labels.
 
"David Clarke will decide for himself what kind of Democrat he wants to be: A conservative one. You can do that," Clarke said.
