Well, if you believe Abdul-Hakim Shabazz over on Indy Politics, she may run for Mayor in 2015.
On Monday, Lewis was the beneficiary of a fundraiser hosted by the following big current and former hitters in Marion County and Indiana politics: Former Mayor Bart Peterson, State Senator Greg Taylor, Dave Corbitt, Carl Drummer, Adairius Gardner, Lacy Johnson, Melina Kennedy, Dave Lewis, Frank Short, and Joe Smith. Top level contribution was $1,000.
I haven't talked to President Lewis about the possibility, but there's no reason to believe that she couldn't run and win. At this point, it's just rumor and innuendo, but it definitely makes sense for Lewis to run. She is well-loved, smart, politically savvy, sharp-as-a-tack, and has an impressive resume. I have always been impressed with her.
