The Berkshire Eagle today endorsed Deval Patrick for Governor, saying, in part
Democrat Deval Patrick has withstood savage attacks upon his integrity without responding in kind, which speaks volumes about the kind of strong, positive governor we believe he will be. The Eagle is pleased to endorse Deval Patrick for governor of Massachusetts.
They did make one statement which I believe misidentifies an endorsing group. If I’m not mistaken, it was the Mass Chiefs of Police (MCOPA) which endorsed Patrick after a discussion about whether to remain neutral (they endorsed Romney 4 years ago).
It is significant that the state police, after first declaring they would be neutral, endorsed Mr. Patrick after meeting him. That speaks not only to the candidate’s ideas but his willingness to listen to others.
