Massachusetts Republican State Committee Election Results – Charlie Baker is the Loser

Trump hater, tax raiser, fiscal and social liberal Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker got in some hard hits against certain conservative Republican State Committee candidates on election day, but in the end, it appears Baker’s team will see a net loss of 10+ seats.

While it will take some time to estimate the amount of money spent by Governor Charlie Baker to purge the Republican State Committee of non-liberals (and that number is huge, viciously huge), it appears at first blush that Charlie once again wasted close to a million trying to purge non-liberals from the Republican State Committee, the 80-member governing board the the MassGOP. The balance of power appears to have shifted toward reform and continuing with last year’s newly elected party chair and former state representative Jim Lyons.

The biggest blow to conservatives was the loss of Mark Bergeron. Bergeron represented Springfield and was unable to defend his seat against a heavily-funded Baker candidate. In a similar fashion, an anticipated 4-6 other seats are seen a going to the liberal Baker win column. However, as noted in the table below, it was a big night for conservatives who displaced what appears to be upwards of a dozen Baker candidates or retirees. We await final numbers on many races. Factoring in open positions filled in some cases by conservatives, in others by Baker candidates, the best that can be said at this time is that Baker’s spending stemmed what might have otherwise been a total rut of the MassGOP.

  1. BB – You did a great service keeping this issue in front of republican voters. I had considered taking a democrat ballot just to down vote Warren, but your information made me change my mind. Thanks!

  2. They told the voters they want to “Drain the swamp”? Well, let’s see if these 8010 candidates that convinced voters to vote for them for this reason are going to keep their promise like President Trump does.

  3. I’m not a registered Republican, but I’m happy that Baker’s phony minions lost in the election. Baker plays go along to get along. His Lt. Governor is busy getting her friends jobs at the state courts. According to the news, Mass has the most scandal ridden state police force in the nation. Mass has one of the lowest ranked children’s services dept. Despite gas taxes and excise taxes, Mass roads are among the worst in the nation still. Also good that faker and divider, Warren dropped out of the Presidential race. She came in 3rd in Mass. If Scotty Brown didn’t go Hollywood and paid some attention to the folks who elected him, then Warren never would have gotten elected. Then we have Markey Vs. Kennedy. An old faker against an extremely unqualified and entitled clown. Hopefully Mass GOP will put up some good candidates this year. Hopefully the new Mass GOP leadership will have tv and radio ads supporting its candidates.
