GOP and Dems duking it outA pro-family activist says Massachusetts Democrats are not too thrilled about former Governor Deval Patrick jumping into the 2020 presidential race.

Patrick enters the Democratic presidential nomination sweepstakes less than three months before primary voting begins. Patrick made history when he became Massachusetts' first black governor. He has close ties to former President Barack Obama and his network of political advisers, but he faces significant fundraising and organizational hurdles this late in the race.

"The news is not being taken well by the Democratic Party here because the Democrats feel if he were to start running in New Hampshire, he would keep Elizabeth Warren from winning," explains Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance. "He's not getting a lot of really great response from his fellow Democrats in Massachusetts."

Camenker adds that Patrick's stint as governor, with "an incredible background of incompetence and just nutty stuff," was less than stellar.

Camenker, Brian (MassResistance)"He'd be another one of those who everybody would say, 'Boy, wouldn't he be wonderful to run against Donald Trump,'" the conservative poses.

And in the unlikely event Patrick gets the nomination, Camenker says Trump would crush him in a general election.
