Spotted hanging around the ice rink outside City Hall are Republican candidate running for governor Charlie Baker, Worcester County Sheriff candidate Lew Evangelidis and Grafton State Rep. George Peterson.
A busload of people are standing on steps behind Charlie Baker with “Had Enough?” signs, and he’s flanked by a large signature-filled sign in the design of a “Hello, My Name is” name tag (but replace “Hello…” with “Had Enough?”). He hammers away at the bad business climate in Massachusetts and the budget deficit, claiming Patrick has passed the budget problems on to municipalities.
A reporter following the candidate estimates that 90% of the crowd standing behind Baker came on his bus. Next stop, Lowell.
