Deval Patrick Campaign Event Canceled at Atlanta College; only 2 people reportedly showed up


The campaign event for former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, who launched a Democratic presidential campaign last week, was reportedly canceled Wednesday night when only two people showed up.

Patrick was due to speak at Morehouse College in Atlanta, a historically black men's college located not far from the site of the Democratic presidential debate Wednesday night. The event was organized by students from the New Deal Democrats.


The student organization told ABC News that only 24-hour reporting of the event and campaign had been given, Patrick said he had canceled because he was late to another event and had to catch a flight.

The campaign added that Patrick would continue his visit to Morehouse, Haslet reported.

Patrick requested by November 14 to be on the main ballot in New Hampshire in February.

This is not the first time Patrick has had trouble filling a room. New York Times reporter Enenifer Medina posted a tweet on Monday of a nearly empty room at another event.
