Deval Patrick in a tough race for re-election in Massachussettes

So, I was about to call Gov. Patrick American's ONLY Black governor then I realized that in the neighboring state of New York there is Gov. David Patterson, a Harlem politician who was elevated to that position thanks to the resignation of Gov. Eliot Spitzer. Patterson is not running for re-election this year however.

Like Illinois, the NY Times considers the Massachusetts Governor's race a tossup with a 75.2% chance of a Patrick victory over his Republican opponent Charlie Baker. This FOX News vid discusses the campaign with Patrick welcoming the President to help him campaign. It was noted that many Democratic candidates have been keeping the President at arms length.
