Independent candidate for Governor Tim Cahill responded to the attack by the Republican Governor’s Association yesterday by releasing an internet video decrying negative attacks, and by placing the blame for the negativity squarely on Charlie Baker’s shoulders. Cahill, from the Globe:
“Something must be wrong with the Baker campaign if they need to spend a million dollars on negative ads seven months before the election,’’ Cahill said yesterday. “It’s unprecedented.’’
Governor Patrick also responded to the ad, which targeted him as well:
“The Baker campaign’s negative attacks are disappointing and sad,’’ Patrick’s campaign manager, Sydney Asbury, said in a statement. “We are just starting to recover from the global economic crisis faster and stronger than most other states, and we need Governor Patrick’s continued strong leadership and proven results, not more negative TV ads.’’
While Patrick did weigh in the main battle is between Baker and Cahill. And the Governor just has to love that dynamic. The Baker campaign later put out a video mocking the Cahill response, essentially calling Cahill a Scott Brown wannabe.
