(NECN: Steve Aveson) - Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick has changed his tune about a race for national office.

For years, whenever asked about his presidential aspirations, he always said he had no interest.
     
Sunday, in an interview with Politico, the governor said "maybe" to potentially running for Commander in Chief after 2016.
     
The governor hinted he would look at returning to public office after "a break" once his second term ends early next year.
     
He told Politico, "That's a decision I have to make along with my wife of 30 years and she's a tough one to convince. Let's just see what time tells."

Patrick previously said he was looking forward to returning to the private sector.

Last year, Patrick started his own political action committee.
