Deval Endorses Warren Before Convention; DeFranco "Disappointed"

 "I am disappointed," Marisa DeFranco tells me, that Governor Deval Patrick chose to endorse Elizabeth Warren in the US Senate race, just two days before the Democratic State Convention at which DeFranco needs 15 percent of the delegate votes to qualify for the primary ballot.

Asked whether she thinks Patrick's endorsement was timed to sway delegates from voting for her this weekend, DeFranco said "I'm going to let other people read the tea leaves on that."

Patrick, according to reports, rejected that notion, saying that he expects DeFranco to qualify for the primary.

DeFranco says that Patrick placed a call to her today prior to announcing the endorsement, but they have not yet connected.
