Charlie Baker Endorses Susan Collins

September 18, 2020

Charlie Baker gave an endorsement to a Republican candidate — outside of Massachusetts.

The Massachusetts governor is set to appear in an ad endorsing U.S. Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine), who is up for re-election this November.

“As governor of Massachusetts, I work with both parties to get things done. Susan Collins does that in the Senate,” Baker said in the ad. “She’s pro-environment, pro-women, pro-Maine. We need more leaders like Susan. I hope you reelect her.”

Collins also supports legal abortion, as does Baker.

The ad Baker is in is 15 seconds long and was made by the Republican Jewish Coalition.

Baker has been slow to endorse Republican candidates in Massachusetts. He also doesn’t issue many endorsements for out-of-state candidates.

Collins also received an endorsement last week from former U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman, a Democrat.
