Deval Patrick Attacks Romney
Deval Patrick rightly smacks Romney around a little. Here
"I wish the governor would focus on the needs and the interests of Massachusetts and not those of the right wing of the national Republican Party," Patrick said.
The statement marks the first time Patrick has formally chimed in on a political issue since mulling a gubernatorial run.
And by opening a downtown campaign office, fund-raising, and touring the state, Democrats said, the Milton lawyer seems serious about throwing his hat in the race.
Patrick, a Chicago native who calls himself a "pro-growth progressive" Democrat, said he will formally announce his decision next month.
