Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs filed paperwork Tuesday to run for another four-year term in 2014, records show.

The move comes as little surprise. She has been discussing her re-election plans openly.

The move allows Jacobs to start raising campaign donations, which typically provides a big advantage for an incumbent mayor.

Jacobs won convincingly in her 2010 race against Democrat Bill Segal, but she's faced a number of controversies over her first two years in office.

Democrats are eager to run a strong candidate against her, and the name most frequently mentioned is former Orlando police Chief Val Demings.

However, Demings is also being recruited to run for Congress again, after losing last year to U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, R-Winter Garden.
