Today’s Beagle has an interesting article entitled “Patrick has a hold on county wallets.”
I’ve posted a short comment on it. The punchline is that 80% of gubernatorial campaign donations in Berkshire County have gone to Deval Patrick.
“(Patrick) has got a very good ground game,” said Matt Barron of Chesterfield, who was a Patrick delegate at the state convention. “He’s expanded that network to the point where he’s canvassed all of the larger communities like Pittsfield and is now going through towns like Shelburne and Buckland. I’ve not seen this since (former Gov. Michael S.) Dukakis was an incumbent running in 1986.”
