Patrick: I'll help Obama as Mass. governor

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) — Gov. Deval Patrick is once again closing the door on the possibility of leaving Massachusetts before the end of his term to take a cabinet post in President Barack Obama's administration.

During his monthly "Ask the Governor" program on WTKK-FM, Patrick said Wednesday he wants to be as helpful as possible during Obama's second term, but will do so as governor.

Patrick was a frequent surrogate for the president on the campaign trail. The governor said he and his wife, Diane, were invited to a small, private celebration with the Obamas at the White House a few days after the president won re-election.

Patrick said he was also mindful that several of his predecessors left office or lost focus on the job of governor before the end of their terms.
