Statement from Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford on the GOP Delegate Selection Plan

“The Massachusetts Republican Party’s delegate selection plan is further evidence that the State Republican Party has truly become the party of Donald Trump,” said Gus Bickford, Chair of the Massachusetts Democratic Party. “The MassGOP’s latest maneuver all but guarantees all Republican delegates to Trump in 2020.  Given what is at stake in this election, it is shocking that this major change in his Party’s rules did not warrant the attention of Charlie Baker. Baker could have stopped the Party from handing its electors to Trump, but he chose to sit it out.”
