INDIANAPOLIS - Democrat Evan Bayh says he's unlikely to make a bid to return to the Indiana governor's office and will make a final decision soon.
The former U.S. senator and two-term governor told WFYI-FM's "No Limits" show that he was waiting until his twin son left for college before deciding with his wife whether to re-enter politics.
Bayh says factors he's considering include the strong Republican hold on the state Legislature and whether his style of leadership would be effective.
Bayh says he expects to make a decision soon after Labor Day on whether to enter the 2016 governor's race.
Bayh retired from the Senate in 2010 but still has nearly $10 million in his campaign fund. He was elected governor in 1988 and 1992.
