Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is calling close allies and informing them he is not running for president in 2020, sources close to the governor tell POLITICO.
Patrick informed staff and advisers of his decision Tuesday, the sources say, with an announcement to come as soon as this week.
A close ally of former President Barack Obama, the Democrat rejoined the private sector at Bain Capital after serving two terms as Massachusetts' governor. But he ramped up his political activity this fall in advance of a possible presidential bid, traveling to a handful of races across the country.

Deval bowed out, eh? Oh, well, I can hear the wails of pain from sea to shining sea....
Make room for Missy Hilliary!..................
BEST NEWS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks to Barry It will be a long, long time before we have another black president.
I remember a time when Bain Capital was evil incarnate.
Trump defeats another Democrat.
Former MA governor.
Well shoot now who am l going to vote for?
That was quick.
The 2020 campaign road for the rats will be a long and lonely one, strewn with the cast away bodies of those trying to defeat President Trump.
The lucky ones will be like this bozo, who got out before facing President Trump.
The unlucky ones will be the ones shredded by President Trump in the social media and other sources.
Their life styles are loved by the dems and despised by other voters. Trump will turn over every rock in their past and show what scum they are.
The fresh faces will all bow out, they know 2024 is the time.
The Democrats will be stuck with Hillary or the Idiot Biden.
I didn’t know he was in it, quite frankly....
Hahahaha. These losers are dropping like flies. MAHGA! Go resident Trump! No quarter to these LIB/DIM criminal nitwits.
Exactly zero people are disappointed by this news. In a long litany of terrible Massachusetts governors - of both parties - Coupe DeVal is right up there in the top five worst. Dude made Jane Swift look downright presidential.
Yes, it could well be, that these Democrats are not wanting to go up against Trump in 2020. They may bide their time till 2024, when there is no incumbent Trump running for reelection.
And historically, the party out of power has a better chance of winning election, when there’s no incumbent running for reelection.
The interest just wasn’t there among enough people.
He’s a very Low Energy, placid kind of person.
Nothing wrong with that, but in this day and age, you need to make a strong impression one way or another.
He is shown on Wiki as being Presbyterian, but has shown much sympathy for Muslim causes.
Trial balloon fell flat.
Too little financial interest.
Trump continues to knock out Dem opponents.
Some of Cankles’ minions paid him a visit.
