Statement from Democrat for Governor Jay Gonzalez on Charlie Baker’s Endorsement of Geoff Diehl for Senate

CAMBRIDGE, September 7th, 2018 — Democrat for Governor Jay Gonzalez today released the following statement on Charlie Baker’s endorsement of Geoff Diehl for Senate:

“Charlie Baker’s endorsement of Geoff Diehl, Donald Trump’s Massachusetts campaign chair, means he wants to send Trump another guaranteed vote to support his hateful policies. By supporting Geoff Diehl, Charlie Baker is asking us to choose someone to represent us who will do everything he can to further an anti-choice, anti-LGBTQ rights and the NRA’s anti-gun control agenda. If Charlie Baker had his way, Massachusetts would have a Senator who would support the appointment of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. I’m supporting Senator Elizabeth Warren for re-election to the U.S. Senate because I know she represents my values. If people want a Governor who will fight back against Donald Trump’s agenda and who will fight to protect a woman’s right to choose, LGBTQ rights and common-sense gun control legislation, I will be that Governor.”
