Former Gov. Deval Patrick Considering Presidential Bid

November 11, 2019

Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is reportedly considering a late entry into the 2020 Democratic field. The news comes days after former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg filed to run in Alabama's March primary.  Both individuals had previously decided against running in 2020, but both apparently see an opening despite the historically large number of candidates already in the race.

The filing deadline for New Hampshire's February 11 first-in-the-nation primary is this Friday. Given the proximity to his state, it would seem likely that Patrick would register for this contest if he is serious about jumping in to the race.
