   There was confirmation today that Republican Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito will run for reelection in 2018.

          In a tweet announcing his run for reelection next year, Baker said, “We’ve accomplished a lot together, but there’s more work to do.”

     Jim Conroy, Baker’s 2014 campaign manager, told the Statehouse News Service that a formal campaign launch will occur next year.

    WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke about the news with Tim Vercellotti, professor of political science and director of the polling institute at Western New England University.
