'Deval For All' joins crowded Dems in presidential race

With the first primaries just weeks away, another democrat is jumping into the president race.

This time, it's former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, who announced the news in a video released on Thursday.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER MASSACHUSETTS GOVERNOR DEVAL PATRICK SAYING: "This time, it's about more than removing an unpopular and devicive leader -- as important as that is, but instead for you." A close ally of former President Barack Obama, Patrick, a 63-year-old African-American, joins nearly 20 other candidates seeking the nomination ahead of next year's election... among the heavyweights -- former Vice President Joe Biden, and two liberals: U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.

Also this week, former New York City Mayor and current billionaire Michael Bloomberg made preparations for a possible run.

Patrick, the Harvard-trained lawyer and two-term former governor is a managing director of the Boston investment firm Bain Capital.

His candidacy will face a steep uphill climb... all but the top five candidates have failed to garner more than a few percentage points of support in state and national polls.

Some fear the last-minute additions are a sign of party volatility and that the strength of front-runner Joe Biden's candidacy may be weakening.
