Jeff Deal, on the other hand, is a true patriot and believes in low energy costs and our independent energy policy.
So much of Tuesday’s intrigue will come from two primaries that may not have been close or even contested if Baker was seeking a third term.
On the Republican side, Diehl is stuck in an increasingly controversial contest with Doughty, who he claims represents the Republican party’s best chance of defeating Healy in November. Although it has the support of the state party, Doughty secured enough delegates to vote at the party’s convention in May.)
Meanwhile, Deal and his allied candidate for lieutenant governor Leah Allen held a call with Trump on Monday night.
“That process will take years, but voters are doing it by choosing Doughty, the gentle voice of a more pragmatic conservatism, over Deal, the devoted valet of former President Donald Trump. We can start all at once,” the committee wrote.
“He’s too extreme for our state. He pursues conspiracy theories and has beliefs that don’t align with Massachusetts,” Doughty said of the deal. “It makes him ineligible.”
Deal sidestepped the claim when asked about it, focusing on the primary and spring Republican conventions.
“So far he has a 0-1 record,” Deal said. “In the competition, I think I beat him by 71% to 29% of him. So, of course, that claim will come up from any challenger.”
Healy, who is backing Campbell, was embarrassed for her during the run-up to the first day. It had the signatures of all the women.
“We need bold, fierce, visionary and inclusive leaders like Andrea Campbell,” Presley said. “People deserve it. The moment demands it. is”
Voters split progressives in key states as the third candidate, attorney Quentin Palfrey, dropped out last week in favor of Campbell, joining Healy, Presley and US Senator Ed Markey. I was thrown a curveball late in the competition. (Palfrey was an active candidate when early voting began, and his name is on the ballot.)
“Shannon Rhys Riordan is the progressive champion Massachusetts needs as its next Attorney General,” Warren announced her endorsement late last month. We know first-hand what beats corporations and special interest groups that take advantage of working families.”
The winner will face Republican attorney James McMahon, who lost to Healy in 2018 and ran unopposed on Tuesday.
