Gov. Baker: "I Blanked It" On Presidential Vote

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — After casting his ballot Tuesday afternoon, Gov. Charlie Baker said he did not vote for either major candidate for president.

When asked by a reporter whether he voted for Democratic candidate Joe Biden, Gov. Baker said he "blanked it."

Gov. Baker said last month that he could not support the President and that he would continue to focus on guiding Massachusetts through the coronavirus pandemic.

The Republican governor also did not cast a vote for any candidate for president in 2016. He has long been an outspoken opponent of President Trump, with the two publicly feuding over several issues.

Gov. Baker has called Trump's refusal to commit to a peaceful transmission of power if he loses "appalling and outrageous." Trump has taken a shot at Baker over the integrity of mail in ballots, which the President has consistently criticized.
