Governor Patrick endorses Elizabeth Warren

SOMERVILLE — Governor Deval Patrick, who had said he would not endorse in the Democratic Senate primary, threw his support behind Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday, seeking to boost her campaign as she faces continued questioning over her assertions of Native American heritage.

Patrick’s endorsement comes just three days before the Democratic convention in Springfield, where some Democrats are hoping to elbow aside Marisa DeFranco, a potential challenger to Warren, by ensuring she does not receive the 15 percent of delegates needed to earn a spot on the September primary ballot.
