Deval Patrick readies Presidential bid

November 13, 2019

  Just when you thought the Democratic Presidential field was starting to weed out the also-rans comes news that former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is preparing to jump into the race. The announcement will probably come tomorrow as the deadline to file in New Hampshire is Friday and, according to this story, he has already missed the deadline to file in Alabama and Arkansas.

 Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is telling friends and allies in phone calls on Wednesday that he has made a decision to run for president, two people familiar with the matter say.

  Plans for the timing of his formal announcement are still in flux, with attention on impeachment, but Patrick is likely to reveal his bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination by video or social media message on Thursday, with a formal appearance in New Hampshire on Friday to file his papers for the primary there with the secretary of state’s office, one person familiar with the plan says.

 The odds could be incredibly steep for a late entrant like Patrick, who is not well known nationally and does not have personal wealth to finance a campaign. Patrick has missed the deadline to appear on the primary ballot in Alabama and Arkansas. The deadline to file in New Hampshire is Friday.

  I think this says something about the state of the candidates who are already running and the lack of voter enthusiasm for any of the candidates. Democratic voters are enthused to vote against the President but that is different than being enthusiastic for a particular candidate.

 Perhaps that is why Deval Partick is being urged to run and this is where it gets interesting. As you know Barack Obama has declined to endorse any candidate, including his own former Vice President, and it just so happens that Barack Obama and Deval Patrick are longtime friends. Could this news be followed by an endorsement in the near future? If so that could shake up the race.
