With the possible field of GOP contenders for president in 2016 wide open, former Maryland Gov. Bob Ehrlich told CNBC on Wednesday he's "listening and talking to small business people" about whether to run.
"I'm running around New Hampshire … and running around different states," he said on "Squawk Box, " but refused to say whether he will become a candidate.
Ehrlich did say he sees a "profound sense of nervousness with middle class America."
"Despite the metrics," he continued, "and the stock market being up, middle class America is not very happy with this spotty recovery."
In 2003, Ehrlich became the first Republican governor of Maryland in nearly 40 years, but lost a re-election bid to Democrat Martin O'Malley.
Ehrlich had supported former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani for president in the 2008 election.
In 2010, Ehrlich failed in his campaign to retake the governorship.
On Tuesday, former New York Gov. George Pataki told CNBC he's thinking about a GOP run for president—saying he can "win and not just in bright red states."
The field of possible Republicans candidates includes former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Marco Rubio of Florida.
