Deval Patrick cancels campaign event after only two people attend

By

On Wednesday, Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick canceled one of his planned campaign events at Morehouse College in Atlanta, when only two people showed up.

Patrick is the latest entry into a crowded Democratic primary field. He only learned of the low turnout upon arriving at the historically black college. When he discovered the crowd size Patrick canceled, according to CNN’s Annie Grayer. She also reported that the two people who showed up in the audience were asked to attend by organizers when they walked through the hallway outside.

Patrick announced his candidacy last week, just in time to qualify for the New Hampshire primary in early February, Mediaite reports.

In a Morning Consult poll released Monday, it was revealed that Patrick had zero percent support among registered voters who said they may vote in Democratic primaries beginning in February next year. It also found that almost half of the respondents had "never heard of" Patrick, making him the least recognized candidate in the field. Then again, he's also the newest.
