As many have been predicting here for the past few weeks, John Olver today endorsed Deval Patrick in the Governor’s race.
âDeval Patrick has shown a commitment to revitalizing Massachusettsâ cities and towns through support of education and the economy,â Olver said. âIt is clear in his efforts to reach out to communities in the Central and Western parts of Massachusetts that Deval Patrick is a leader for the entire state.â
The full press release is available on the Patrick web site.
This is Patrick’s fifth congressional endorsement as Olver joins Capuano, Frank, McGovern and Tierney. Patrick now has half of our congressmen in his corner. Not bad going in to the convention.
As I understand Meehan and Neal have endorsed Reilly. I do no know of any congressional endorsements for Gabrielli.
Also of note Barack Obama will be in town today supporting Deval Patrick at a fundraiser/pre-convention rally.
