After ruling out a run for president nearly a year ago, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is reportedly having second thoughts.

The New York Times said Patrick is strongly considering a run for president and has been talking with Democratic donors and operatives.

Elected in 2006, as the state’s first black governor, Patrick left office in 2015.

His approval ratings were high then, according to Tim Vercellotti, director of the polling institute at Western New England University.
