BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has bucked the anti-incumbent trend and won a second term with the help of some of the same political advisers who hope to do the same in two years for his friend President Barack Obama.

With 67 percent of precincts reporting, the Democrat had 49 percent to Republican challenger Charles Baker's 41 percent. Independent candidate Timothy Cahill placed third with 8 percent, while Green-Rainbow Party candidate Jill Stein was a distant fourth.

Patrick benefited from the unusual four-way race, especially with Cahill's candidacy.

The Republican Governors Association sought a trophy win by knocking off the president's fellow Chicagoan and Harvard Law alumnus. But it failed despite spending millions on anti-Patrick ads.
