Republican candidate Scott Lively submits final paperwork in run against Gov. Baker

Boston Statehouse

Tuesday afternoon, Republican candidate for governor, Rev. Scott Lively submitted the remainder of his paperwork.

He’s running against Governor Charlie Baker in the GOP primary. 

The Springfield clergyman/lawyer provided the Secretary of State’s office in Springfield with the last of the 11,000 signatures to assure his candidacy.

Reverend Lively believes it’s significant he received more than 27 percent of the delegate votes at the recent Republican state convention.

“I think there’s tremendous dissatisfaction with Mr. Baker. The only people that really like Charlie in Massachusetts right now are the Democrats, and they don’t get to vote in the primary,” Lively said.

That primary is set for September 4 to determine the Republican candidate in the November election.
