• Gov. Patrick to visit daughter, grandson in CA


    BOSTON (AP) - Gov. Deval Patrick is heading out of town again, this time to visit his daughter and grandson in California.

    Patrick will leave Massachusetts on Wednesday and is set to return on Sunday.

    It's the latest in a series of out-of-state trips for Patrick, who has just 14 months left in his second - and he says his last - term as governor.

    Last Saturday, Patrick headed to Maine overnight for another personal trip, and returned on Sunday. Last Wednesday, Patrick made another overnight trip to Chicago.

    Earlier this month Patrick spent four days in Canada on a trade mission.

    Patrick and his wife, Diane, became grandparents for the first time in May when their oldest daughter, Sarah Baker Patrick Morgese, gave birth to a son in San Francisco.
