President Deval Patrick?

Former President Barack Obama has apparently told former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick to consider running for president in 2020. Others close advisers to the former president such as Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod also encouraged Patrick to consider running in 2020.

The inner circle pointed out that Patrick would poll well in his native New England and in Southern black communities. In response to the speculation, Patrick told Politico, “I’m trying to think about how to be helpful, because I care about the country, and I’m a patriot first. It’s way, way to soon to be making plans for 2020.”
