SACRAMENTO —

A business group is expected to endorse former California Senate leader Darrell Steinberg for Sacramento mayor Tuesday morning.

Region Business, a Sacramento political advocacy group for businesses, said Monday they were going to preemptively endorse Steinberg for mayor.

Steinberg has not yet confirmed whether he will run for mayor, but rumors have been swirling that an announcement could come soon.

If Steinberg throws his hat in the ring, he would face Sacramento City Councilwoman Angelique Ashby — the only person to declare their candidacy so far.
