BOSTON (AP) - Gov. Deval Patrick is dismissing criticism from Republicans
that he has been spending too much time out of state while campaigning for
President Barack Obama.
Patrick, during an unscheduled visit to the Statehouse press gallery on
Monday, said he was "governor all the time," and was always connected
and engaged to the job even when out of town.
The governor spent last Friday and Saturday campaigning for Obama in North
Carolina and Virginia.
Of his critics, the governor said: "I'm glad they missed me."
He also accused them of "playing politics" and said he would ask
them if they were finding time to do their own jobs.
