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.
