Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson announced last night that he would not seek a third term in next year's election. The Sacramento native and former NBA star became the city's first African-American mayor in 2008.

"After much thought and soul-searching I have decided not to run for a third term as mayor," Johnson wrote in a statement released on Twitter late Tuesday night. "It was an incredibly difficult choice, but one I feel confident about."

Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler joins us with an update on the mayor's decision, including what it means for his legacy. Adler also spoke with two potential candidates, Angelique Ashby and Darryl Steinberg. We'll hear what they have to say.
