Rule of Law: Healey's Attacks on Deval Patrick in Massachusetts Gubernatorial Race
by Elizabeth Cole

The race for governor in Massachusetts has always been something of an odd one. For a state with a well-earned reputation as a liberal stronghold, it has been surprisingly conservative in its picks for governor. Since 1914, the people of Massachusetts have elected 25 governors: 11 Democrats and 14 Republicans. In fact, our last Democratic governor was Michael Dukakis, who left office in 1991.

This year, the Democrats have a strong contender in Deval Patrick, who served under Bill Clinton as the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights. In the primary, Patrick ran a clean campaign, appealing to his supporters as intelligent enough to see through attack ads and consider the issues as more than soundbites. Democrats across the state rallied to the call, and Patrick won the primary in a landslide, with 50% of the vote to 27% for Chris Gabrieli and 23% for Tom Reilly.
