Bernero was considered a potential Democratic candidate for Governor of Michigan until March of 2013, when he announced his decision not to challenge Republican incumbent Rick Snyder to a rematch in the 2014 election. Snyder defeated Bernero in 2010.[2] Bernero had also explored possible bids for U.S. House and Senate, but ultimately decided not to run for either office.[3]
