BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The first Republican candidate has entered the 2022 race to become the next Governor of Massachusetts.
As a state lawmaker, Diehl led a statewide campaign that rolled back an automatic gasoline tax increase. In 2018, Diehl lost his bid for senate to current Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Also serving as the Director of Business Development for TRQ Autoparts, he has been outspoken against the Transportation and Climate Initiative Program signed by Massachusetts Republican Gov. Charlie Baker and other New England governors.
It is unclear at this time if Governor Baker will seek re-election in 2022.
