Tom Reilly's Slip Up is Deval Patrick's Catch Up ...

Here's a Gubernatorial race we, admittedly, haven't paid a lot of attention to ... perhaps because the spotlight of the Pennsylvania and Ohio races blinded us a bit. But, former U.S. Assistant Attorney General Deval Patrick is making a strong showing in the Massachusetts Democratic caucuses. Attorney General Tom Reilly was considered the Dem favorite, but he's been dropping the campaign ball in a bad way as of late through a series of inept political moves.

Democratic delegates give Patrick a 2-to-1 edge; rather than let the brother run, the state Dem party apparatus is engaging in as reports: " ... a renewed drive to recruit some other Dem into the race -- and several names are in play as "draft" targets."
