Trump-endorsed Republican Candidate for Massachusetts Governor Geoff Diehl Retains a Commanding Lead Over his Republican Opponent Chris Doughty

A story about the first debate between Massachusetts Republican candidates for governor mentions a UMass Amherst/WVCB poll finding that more than half of respondents say they favor the Trump-endorsed Geoff Diehl while 17% would cast ballots for political newcomer Chris Doughty. “He’s running a campaign that’s targeted to Alabama voters and here we are in Massachusetts, so he’s going to lose,” Doughty said about Diehl on the Howie Carr Show in a debate sponsored by the conservative-aligned Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance.
