Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich says he won’t rule out another run for office if he is cleared at a second trial.

Blagojevich spoke on “Fox News Sunday” less than a week after he was convicted of lying to federal agents. Jurors, however, deadlocked on 23 other more serious charges, including that he had tried to sell President Barack Obama’s old Senate seat.

Federal prosecutors have said they will retry Blagojevich on those charges, but the former governor insisted that he will be vindicated.

“I didn’t lie to the FBI. I’m not lying to you, and I didn’t lie to the people,” Blagojevich told talk show host Chris Wallace.

When Wallace asked Blagojevich if he would run for office again, he answered, “If you’re asking me, do I believe that there’s a potential political comeback in the future, when I’m vindicated, absolutely I do.”
