Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker held a rally on Sunday to build support for his upcoming face-off against Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Gonzalez in November.
After winning the Republican nomination for a second term by besting Scott Lively in Tuesday’s primary, Baker walked the streets of Boston and met with supporters.
Baker said he is ready to continue making improvements across the state.
“I’m enormously proud of the work we’ve done on a bipartisan basis in the Commonwealth; on the economy, in education, on so many issues,” Baker said. “180,000 new jobs since we took office, highest number of people working in state history; highest graduation rate we’ve ever had, lowest dropout rate we’ve ever had.”
Baker’s campaign said 22 Massachusetts mayors, including ten Democrats, have endorsed his re-election bid.
