Jerry Springer stepped out for a Labor Day parade in Cleveland as he mulls a run for Ohio governor.

The 73-year-old tabloid TV host appeared at a parade and rally Monday supporting union rights and a $15 minimum wage, reports WCMH.

“I know there’s talk … I haven’t decided anything … and certainly no announcement Monday,” the TV host and former Democratic Cincinnati mayor told CNN in an email statement issued by his publicist Wednesday. “I’m in Cleveland that day (Monday) giving a speech at the Labor Day rally supporting unions.”

The Democrat was joined by health care workers, librarians, security guards and other members of the Service Employees International Union.

Springer previously considered running for US Senate in 2000 and 2004, but decided against it.
