Massachusetts Governor to Dine at the White House Friday

The auditions for President Obama's second-term cabinet are under way, with Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts and his wife heading to Washington on Friday for dinner with Mr. Obama and his wife, Michelle.

A White House official confirmed the “social” evening, on Friday, after reports surfaced in Boston. Mr. Patrick's office said in a statement that “after breaking ground for the Fore River Bridge on the Quincy/Weymouth line this afternoon, Governor Patrick will fly to D.C. With Mrs. Patrick to have a social dinner tonight with the president at the White House. ”

Mr. Patrick is believed to be a possible contender for the job of attorney general if Eric H. Holder Jr. steps down.
