The 63-year-old, who served as governor from 2007 to 2015, was most recently a managing director at Bain Capital, a private equity firm, and served as a CBS News contributor since September.

Patrick, a former federal prosecutor with close ties to Barack Obama, said last December that he would not seek the presidency, citing the potential strain on his family, according to CBS.
