Mass Dems Web Video: Republican Charlie Baker’s Real Record
Boston—Just 24 hours after an out of state Republican Super PAC headed by embattled New Jersey Governor Chris Christie began airing TV ads trying to support Republican Charlie Baker, the Massachusetts Democratic Party released the following web video setting the record straight on Republican Baker’s state government career.
The video takes straight aim at the PAC ad’s theme of “results” and reminds voters that they may not like the real results of Republican Baker’s record.
“If the Super PAC supporting Republican Charlie Baker wants to talk about the results and hurtful impact of his work in the public and private sectors, we’re happy to have that discussion. Voters know Republican Baker’s time as a Beacon Hill insider and healthcare CEO was hurtful for those who value an efficient transportation system in our state and for working families,” said Democratic Coordinated Campaign Chair Ben Downing. “Voters remember Republican Baker is responsible for the fiscal shell games of the Big Dig that left us with a billion dollar a year hole in transportation, and as a healthcare CEO he tripled of his own salary while hiking premiums on policyholders and laying off thousands of workers.”
