The Boston Herald got Capuano’s views on the Governor’s race, and he endorsed . . . no one. He wouldn’t even announce real support for Coakley in the general.
“I think she’s been a great attorney general and I think if she gets elected, she would be a good governor. But it doesn’t mean I think she’s the best candidate,”
The Somerville Democrat said yesterday he presumes he’ll back the Democratic nominee — “I can’t imagine that I wouldn’t” — but he also spoke highly of Baker, the former health insurance executive.
Maybe the Herald cherrypicked some quotes from the full statement to make it seem like he wouldn’t back Coakley, but what do you think?
Is he still mad about the 2009 primary? Is the personal connection to Baker the true factor? Could Coakley have a serious problem on her hands rallying the troops for the general? Or does he want Baker to win so that he can run against him in 2018 – after passing this year because polls showed he had no shot against the AG?
