Charlie Baker, Nation’s Most Popular Gov, to Run for Re-Election

Gov. Charlie Baker (R-MA), the nation’s most popular governor, announced on Tuesday he will run for re-election in 2018.

Baker confirmed the news in a tweet, saying, “there’s more work to do.”

Baker goes into his second campaign for governor being able to boast of the highest approval rating of any governor in the nation. Nearly seven in 10 of his constituents (69 percent) approve of his performance in office, according to Morning Consult. Only 17 percent disapprove.

Baker’s feat is all the more impressive when one recalls that Massachusetts is a true-blue state. Hillary Clinton won Massachusetts, defeating Donald Trump in 2016 by a whopping 27 points, and the state’s two senators (Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey) are liberal Democrats.

It’s clear Massachusetts voters think Baker’s successes in office transcend party lines.
