Democrats Now Favored In Massachusetts Race For Governor, Election Forecaster Says

December 2, 2021

Sabato’s Crystal Ball updated its election forecast on Wednesday.

In light of news that incumbent Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker (and lieutenant governor Karyn Polito) won’t run again next year, the organization says that the 2022 Massachusetts gubernatorial election now favors the Democratic Party.

The old rating for the race was “likely Republican,” because Baker was expected to run and win. Now, the site says that it’s “likely Democratic.”

At this point in the race, the frontrunner on the Republican side is former state representative Geoff Diehl (R-Whitman), who has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump. On the Democratic side, it’s unclear who holds that post — and many people, including attorney general Maura Healey and former Boston mayor Marty Walsh, may be interested in running.
