Bayh Mulls Running for Governor

Former Sen. Evan Bayh (D) is keeping Indiana Democrats on hold about his possible intentions to run for governor, Howey Politics reports.

"Party loyalists longing for a political savior to retake the governor's office have been waiting on Bayh ever since he abruptly decided to leave the U.S. Senate and political life three years ago. For now, it appears, they'll just have to keep waiting, perhaps well into this fall. Despite a hefty campaign war chest and deep nostalgia for his days as a popular centrist Democrat, Bayh says he needs more time to decide whether he'll try to recapture his old job."

Said Bayh: "I think it's less likely than more likely. I haven't ruled it out."
