Matthew McConaughey says he's seriously weighing a gubernatorial run in his home state of Texas.
When asked about it Wed. March 10, the actor told podcast host Rania Mankarious, "its a true consideration."

This isn't the first time the 51-year-old has publicly flirted with running for Texas' highest office. He made similar comments on a conservative radio show back in November.

Texas governor Greg Abbott is up for re-election next year.
