Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker has announced he will not vote for President Trump.
The governor, who has bipartisan support in his Democrat-leaning state made the announcement on Wednesday.
According to Fox News:
Gov. Charlie Baker of Massachusetts – a Republican critic of President Trump – won’t be voting for the president in November’s election.
“The governor cannot support Donald Trump for president and is focused on seeing Massachusetts through the pandemic,” Baker communications director Lizzy Guyton wrote in a statement. “He’ll leave the election analysis to the pundits.”
The statement came on Wednesday, hours after Baker – taking questions from reporters – said he would “take a pass” when asked who he would be supporting for president.
Baker joins Gov. Phil Scott of Vermont, a fellow New England Republican governor, in signaling they won’t vote for the GOP incumbent in the White House.
Baker has not yet endorsed Biden or indicated that he will be voting for the Democrat nominee.
