Patrick doesn’t want AG job, Website reports

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Deval Patrick's Friday trip to dine with President Obama was strictly a social one, according to an aide.

In a statement, Alex Goldstein, Executive Director of Patrick's political committee, told that Patrick's visit to Washington on Friday didn't include talk of the widely speculated rumor that the governor may be tapped for the U.S. Attorney General position.

"The Governor has the only job in public life that he wants – and he looks forward to completing his term as Governor," Goldstein told "The purpose of the trip was a social dinner and nothing more."

Patrick played a prominent role as a co-chair of Obama's re-election campaign. He delivered a speech at the Democratic National Convention and served as a surrogate for Obama in television appearances.

Patrick, who is also a friend of Obama and shares Chicago roots, created his own political action committee to pay for his travels around the country on behalf of the president.

Patrick has been mentioned as a possible Obama cabinet member, but he's pledged to serve the last two years of his term.
