Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin of Virginia is reportedly "reconsidering" a run for the White House in the 2024 election.
Youngkin previously said he would not run for president "this year."
Youngkin's comment led many to believe that he had called off running for president in 2024.
"No," Youngkin said in an interview with Wall Street Journal editor at large Gerard Baker when asked if he would be "dusting off" the signature fleece vest he became known for during his gubernatorial winning campaign.
"I’m going to be working in Virginia this year," Youngkin said.
Youngkin is now "reconsidering" a presidential run, according to a source close to the Virginia governor.
"He’s reconsidering. He’d be in his own lane: He’s not never-Trump, and he’s not Trump-light," according to the source.
A Virginia Republican strategist said there are "serious discussions happening on re-engaging in the presidential" race.
If Youngkin were to announce a presidential run, it would likely come after Virginia's legislative elections in November.
"If the guy flips any seats at all, it’s proof that his political machine is ready to go," a senior Youngkin aide said in an interview with Axios.
Youngkin released a nationally themed ad last week focusing on "the future of America."
