Massachusetts conservatives versus the RGA

Tim Cahill, the independent candidate for governor of Massachusetts, has gotten some covering fire in his war against the Republican Governors Association -- which made an anti-Cahill ad its first big buy in the state. The conservative Massachusetts Republican Assembly is firing at the RGA for its support of the GOP nominee, Charlie Baker.

Charlie Baker is a pro-choice, gun grabbing, pro-gay liberal. His running mate Richard Tisei has been a thorn in the side of conservatives across this state for years. Baker went out of this way to poke conservatives in the eye when he picked Tisei. Richard Tisei is the sponsor of the trans-gender bathroom bill, has a 100 percent NARAL rating and was the only Republican to vote against the Income Tax Rollback.

I chatted today with David Stubbline, the vice chairman (and a board member) of the conservative Massachusetts Family Institute. He was, if anything, less kind to Baker.

"I'm a registered Republican," said Stubbline. "I typically vote Republican. Charlie Baker represents, in our estimation, a died in wool liberal. He is staunchly pro-abortion, pro-homosexual marriage, and he has a lackluster record economic fiscal policies. There is no way he'll get my vote. The RGA, spending a million dollars on Baker -- that makes no sense."
