Massachusetts Republicans are struggling with fallout from the state party convention. The convention in late March, as expected, overwhelmingly endorsed Charlie Baker for governor. But, Tea Party candidate Mark Fisher claims he was wrongly denied a chance to challenge Baker for the nomination. He’s filed suit against the party alleging rules and delegate vote counts were manipulated so that he would not get the required 15 percent of the delegate’s votes to be certified for the primary ballot.
Charlie Baker, making his second run for governor in Massachusetts, got the Republican nomination at the state party convention over the weekend. Baker narrowly avoided a primary fight – at least for now.
Republican activists at the state convention in Boston strongly backed Baker for their party’s gubernatorial nomination with 82 percent of the 2,500 delegates voting for him.
" Thank you for believing in me," Baker said to the cheering delegates.
