Bob Knight Considers Another Term As Wichita Mayor

Former Wichita mayor Bob Knight is considering another campaign for that office.

Knight says he's been approached by several people encouraging him to run when Mayor Carl Brewer leaves office in 2015.

Term limits prevent Brewer from running again.

Knight, who is now 72 years old, served multiple terms as mayor between 1980 and 2003.

He was also the Kansas commerce secretary from 1992 to 1995, and ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination for governor in 2002.

Knight says he expects to make a decision about seeking the mayor's office in the next few months.
