MasterList reported earlier today that a new new SuperPac has entered the governor’s race.
“The super PAC is chaired by Michael Valanzola, a former candidate for state Senate and chief operating officer in Gov. Charlie Baker’s Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs before he resigned early in Baker’s first term after getting caught up in a scandal involving pressure being put on the partner of an administration employee not to run against an incumbent state lawmaker.
Despite only officially forming Monday, New Hope reported raising $17,500 earlier this month from five donors, including $10,000 from Mark Paullin, the CEO of Capstan, Incorporated in California. Doughty is president of the company’s East Coast hub Capstan Atlantic.
Paullin is not listed as having ever donated to a candidate in Massachusetts before Doughty. Other donors to New Hope include Harold Banks of West Falmouth ($1,000), Gordon Geoffrey of Norwell ($5,000) and Lynn Northern-Spanganberg of Arizona ($1,000).”

Editor’s Note: In addition to promoting abortions and supporting Mass. abortion laws for late-term killing, Doughty voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, and says he’s looking for a new face, not Trump, to run in the next cycle.
