NEW: Gov. Patrick Endorses Elizabeth Warren

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

 

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick

Governor Deval Patrick formally endorsed Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren today at her campaign headquarters in Somerville.

Gov. Patrick sent an email to Warren supporters outlining his reasons for backing her over Republican incumbent Scott Brown.

"The American Dream defines what it is to be an American," Patrick said in the email. "They for too many people in the Commonwealth today the American Dream is up for grabs. Elizabeth has lived the American Dream and knows it is worth fighting for."

Patrick went on to praise Warren for her belief that government has a role to play, but should not be there to solve every problem in a person's life. Warren had her own words of praise for the governor upon learning of the endorsement.

"Governor Patrick has led Massachusetts with a strong belief in the importance of social justice, generational responsibility, and the politics of conviction, not convenience," Warren said. "I am deeply honored to receive his endorsement, and I look forward to working with Governor Patrick to create a level playing field for working families and to give all people across the Commonwealth a fair shot at success."

According to the latest poll by Suffolk University, Warren has been gaining momentum in the race, pulling even with Brown late last week. This is in stark contrast to a Suffolk poll released in February that had Warren trailing Brown by nine points, 49 to 40.
