Newly-entered 2020 candidate Deval Patrick boasted that the Democrats are the “party of the woke.”
Appearing on MSNBC on Thursday after officially launching his presidential campaign, the former Massachusetts governor was asked about the “vulnerability” of his involvement in Bain Capital, the investment firm that previously dogged Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign.
The article goes on to state the following:
“First of all, I love that the party has moved to the left. I love that we are the party of the woke,” Patrick said. “I believe that we also have to be the party of the still waking, and I have always conducted my personal life and my business life and my life as a civil rights lawyer, my life as an advocate, my life as a mediator and as a governor that way. And, why? It’s not because I’m trying to smooth over issues. I am interested in getting at root causes.”
Patrick also took swipes at the current 2020 frontrunners on Thursday.
Patrick said he was “a big, big fan of” former Vice President Joe Biden’s but said “deep, deep, public empathy doesn’t always come through in this campaign.”
On Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass, Patrick lashed out over their progressive “Medicare-for-all” proposal, saying “if we want solutions that last, they can’t be solutions that feel to the voting public as if they are just Democratic solutions.”
