Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak is opening a new political venture as he considers whether to seek a third term atop Minnesota's largest city.

Rybak has registered a statewide political action committee after closing a separate account that was the vehicle for an unsuccessful run for governor two years ago. Rybak is listed as chairman of the new RYPAC that will allow him to engage financially in state campaigns. His defunct gubernatorial committee put in some seed money.

He has a year left in on his second mayoral term but hasn't said if he will run again. Rybak is also vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

The mayor's advisers have said they an announcement of his 2013 plans by month's end.

Rybak was not immediately available for comment Tuesday.
