Massachusetts Republican Gov. Charlie Baker has been coy about whether or not he will run for a third term next year, but we now have a strong clue that he is taking concrete action to construct a campaign. Though he has done little to raise much money for another political bid, the Baker campaign has now scheduled a major fundraising event for August 20th, thus suggesting that he will again be on the ballot next year.
For the Democrats, state Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz (D-Boston), former state Senator Ben Downing, and Harvard University professor Danielle Allen are announced gubernatorial candidates. Ex-state Representative and 2018 Republican US Senate nominee Geoff Diehl has announced for the GOP nomination.
