Geoff Diehl To Run For Governor Of Massachusetts

Printed from:

Former state representative Geoff Diehl (R-Whitman) will run for governor of Massachusetts in 2022.

Diehl, who represented the Seventh Plymouth district from 2011 to 2019, made the announcement at an event in western Massachusetts on Sunday, July 4, with no press in attendance. Diehl confirmed the news in an email message to NewBostonPost on Sunday afternoon, after multiple sources alerted NewBostonPost of the matter.

Diehl, a conservative Republican, ran statewide for U.S. Senate against incumbent Democrat Elizabeth Warren in 2018.

A conservative Republican, Diehl supported President Donald Trump in both the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections. He was also one of the few elected officials in the state to endorse Trump in the 2016 primary. 

He is the second Republican to announce he is running for governor in the state. Darius Mitchell of Lowell was the first.

Incumbent governor Charlie Baker, also a Republican has not said if he plans to seek a third term. If Baker doesn’t, Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito is widely expected to run for governor.

Diehl told NewBostonPost he will have a press release on the matter with more information later today.


New to NewBostonPost?  Conservative media is hard to find in Massachusetts.  But you’ve found it.  Now dip your toe in the water for two bucks — $2 for two months.  And join the real revolution.
