Statement from Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford On Charlie Baker and Karyn Polito’s Decision Not to Seek Re-election

“The takeover of the MassGOP by the Donald Trump wing of the Republican Party is complete. Charlie Baker was pushed out of office by his own Party which has completely adopted the tactics and policies of Donald Trump. The MassGOP’s hand-picked candidate for Governor, Geoff Diehl, is a Trump loyalist whose extreme politics match the hate and divisiveness peddled by the national Republican Party.

Massachusetts Democrats have been and continue to be ready to take back the corner office in 2022. We are offering a vision for what Massachusetts should be, and how we can get there, together. Geoff Diehl and the Massachusetts Republican Party are offering chaos, division and policies that will drag our state back in time. We believe voters will choose progress in 2022.”
