The election may still be two years away, but Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone announced Monday night that he plans to seek a second term in office in 2015. 

According to a Newsday report, Bellone made the announcement at a fundraiser at the Huntington Hilton after joking that he wasn't "going to be making any news tonight." 

Bellone, a Democrat, was elected to office in 2011 after serving 10 years as Babylon Town supervisor. 

No word yet on any potential Republican challengers in 2015.
