• Patrick to campaign for Obama in south


    BOSTON (AP) - Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is hitting the road again in support of President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.

    Patrick plans appearances in two key southern states, North Carolina and Virginia, over the next two days.

    Patrick has appearances scheduled in Charlotte, and Raleigh, N.C. on Friday.

    A spokesman for the governor's political committee says he will be visiting the Virginia campuses of Old Domininion University, Hampton University and the College of William & Mary on Saturday in support of get-out-the-vote efforts.

    Patrick last year formed a political action committee, called Together PAC, to finance his travels and activities on behalf of Obama's re-election effort. The PAC had raised nearly $1.3 million through June 30, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission.
