Gov. Deval Patrick’s unconventional early endorsement of Elizabeth Warren yesterday — a bombshell dropped just three days before delegates vote in his own party’s state convention — harks back to the bad old days of political bosses who handpicked candidates in back rooms, critical Democrats charged. “The choice should be in the hands of the people,” said Marisa DeFranco, the only Democratic candidate left to face off with Warren in the U.S. Senate race — who was already facing opposition from the party elite even before yesterday’s gubernatorial gambit. “At the beginning of the 20th century we had party bosses who made decisions for us in smoke-filled rooms, but primaries were born out of the displeasure with that process.”
