NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 13: U.S. Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN) speaks at the launch of the unaffiliated political organization known as No Labels December 13, 2010 at Columbia University in New York City. The event features numerous politicians, journalists and citizens in a series of panels which address some of the most intractable political issues in America. Led by Republican political consultant Mark McKinnon, Democratic consultant Kiki McLean, political advisor Nancy Jacobson and CNN contributor John Avlon, the group looks to find solutions to problems partly by getting politicians to put aside their partisan behavior in order to find common ground.

Former Indiana Governor and Senator Evan Bayh (D) said he hasn't ruled out running for governor again in 2016.

"I think it's less likely than more likely," Bayh told Howey Politics. "I haven’t ruled it out."

Bayh, a Fox News contributor, wrote of his decision to retire from Congress in a 2010 New York Times op-ed in which he panned the "institutional and cultural impediments" of the Senate.

Instead of going back to Indiana University's Kelley School of Business, where he lectured before winning his Senate seat, Bayh made a lucrative life for himself after Congress as a partner at the lobbying firm McGuireWoods, a senior advisor at Apollo Global Management and a member of the CIA's advisory board.

Bayh currently has $9.8 million in his inactive campaign account.

Bayh's potential opponent, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R), is seen as a prospective 2016 presidential candidate.
