Patrick says report wrong that he recommended Ortiz

Governor Deval Patrick strongly denied Friday that he had discussed a potential guber­natorial candidacy by US Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz with the leaders of the House and Senate in a private conversation at the State House.

Responding to questions about a report in the Globe, Patrick told State House News Service that the newspaper was inaccurate in reporting that he raised Ortiz’s name as a candidate for governor in 2014 during his meeting with Senate President Therese Murray and House Speaker Robert A. ­DeLeo.
