Former Virginia Governor and longtime Clinton associate Terry McAuliffe has filed papers for a 2021 re-run for his former seat, though he says he won’t be making a final decision until Democrats “defeat Donald Trump and his hateful ideology” this November.

While Virginia’s Governors are barred from serving consecutive terms, they may serve non-consecutive terms, though only one Governor, Mills Godwin has done so, leading the Commonwealth from 1966 to 1970 and again from 1974 to 1978.

McAuliffe, a native New Yorker who once served as DNC chair spent years mulling over gubernatorial runs in both New York and Florida before settling on the Old Dominion.
