Patrick Helps Obama Win Mass.

This article is more than 11 years old.

Even though Massachusetts voted for Hillary Clinton back on Super Tuesday, Barack Obama won the majority of Bay State delegate votes yesterday, thanks in part to the efforts of Governor Deval Patrick.

The 65-52 delegate count for Obama was secured after much lobbying by Obama supporter Deval Patrick. The Governor spoke with WBUR's Bob Oakes about how he achieved that small victory, and what it means.

This program aired on August 28, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
