Another RINO isn’t seeking re-election.
Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker(R) has announced he will not seek re-election.
Baker supported the impeachment of Donald Trump and called for him to be ousted from office after Jan 6th.
Republican Gov. Charlie Baker of Massachusetts announced on Wednesday that he won’t seek a third term in 2022.
“After several months of discussion with our families, we have decided not to seek re-election in 2022,” the popular governor and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito announced in an email to supporters.
“This was an extremely difficult decision for us,” the two GOP politicians explained. “We love the work, and we especially respect and admire the people of this wonderful Commonwealth. Serving as Governor and Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts has been the most challenging and fulfilling jobs we’ve ever had. We will forever be grateful to the people of this state for giving us this great honor.”
Baker first ran for governor in 2010, narrowly losing to Democratic incumbent Gov. Deval Patrick. Four years later he edged out then-Democratic state Attorney General Martha Coakley to win the governorship in the blue state of Massachusetts. He won a second term in 2018 by a landslide.
A key part of the anger by many Bay State Republicans against Baker has been his outspoken criticism of former President Donald Trump, who remains extremely popular and influential with GOP voters and politicians. Baker supported the first impeachment of then-President Trump in 2019, and called on him to be ousted from office after the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters aiming to overturn congressional certification of Biden’s 2020 election victory.
