Great Schools' kick-off rally featured Governor Charlie Baker and excited parents, but the hedge fund managers bankrolling this venture appeared nowhere in the campaign pictures. What's in it for them?
As criticism mounts about the Massachusetts Republican Party's Barely Legal fundraising campaign, it's Governor Charlie Baker who is most at risk. He can start by reading the fund raising letters before they go out.
Yesterday's decision by the state Office of Campaign and Political Finance to stand aside as the Republican State Committee flouts state law was another great day for big money.
Chris Christie and Charlie Baker face very similar political circumstances – Republican Governors in deeply blue Northeastern states. Mitt Romney strongly considered Christie for his presidential ticket. But when all three had to decide on a Donald Trump Presidency, at one of the last junctures where he can be derailed from the GOP nomination, only the Massachusetts men said “no.” If Trump wins, Christie is culpable. Governors Baker and Romney decided quite differently.
yes, the GOP needs more Baker and more Romney.
It needs more Massachusetts and far less Jersey.
With the prospects of Donald Trump winning the Massachusetts GOP primary tomorrow, it is hard to imagine a worse time to try and bring some common sense to the Republican State Committee.
