Governor Deval Patrick is throwing his support to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, an endorsement that will give the Illinois senator a much needed boost in New Hampshire and help blunt Hillary Clinton's courting of African-American leaders.
Senior administration officials confirmed that Patrick called Obama today to confirm his plans to endorse his presidential candidacy.
Bam! Take that, Hillary! Once Obama gets Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, he's got the election! Right? Maybe not.
