Former Gov. Deval Patrick will appear on CBS This Morning on Thursday after multiple reports that Patrick had spent the day Wednesday informing Democratic Party leaders that he had decided to enter the 2020 race for president.

Patrick was political contributor to CBS News, but during the network's evening newscast on Wednesday anchor Norah O'Donnell said CBS News was "discontinuing that relationship" in light of Patrick's apparent decision to become a candidate.

"You can hear much more from Deval Patrick tomorrow when he appears on CBS This Morning," O'Donnell said.

Patrick is scheduled to be on the station at 8 a.m. live. It will be his first public appearance since the news broke Monday night that the two-term former governor was reconsidering his decision from December 2018 not to run for president.

The New York Times reported Wednesday night that after announcing his campaign on Thursday Patrick would travel to Concord, New Hampshire to file paperwork to qualify for the primary ballot there, and then head to California and three other early nominating states - Nevada, Iowa and South Carolina.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, another Massachusetts Democrat and a leading contender for the party's nomination, was in New Hampshire Wednesday filing her ballot paperwork.
