Massachusetts May Get First Black Governor

Democrat Deval Patrick is leading his Republican challenger, Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey, by as much as 25 points. Healey, if elected, would be the state's first woman to hold the office.

A group of 11 prominent local Republicans took the unusual step of endorsing the Democrat on Monday.

"The Republican Party that I grew up with, supported for many years, has changed a good deal," said former Republican state Sen. Bill Saltonstal, 79, one of the group.

Now there's an understatement!
