The November race would then have Christy, Charley Baker, Tim Cahill, and Deval.
Christy would be a player and will get his vote. If Christy stays in Repub race we will never know he is there. And most of his base won’t get the chance to vote for him.
People have grown to like Christy over the years. He is not as much of a gadfly as he was once thought. Still a gadfly though. And he has been right about much of the waste at the Turnpike.
You need at at minimum 25.1% of the vote to have a chance to win win among four candidates.
I bet Christy has an automatic base of 10 – 12% among repubs, dems, and indies.
He could win like Arnold or Jesse Ventura.
A populist candidate.
Christy, really dude, you have to do this. This will allow you to play a real role in the election and lightening may strike.
Think of the fun you could have busting Charley Baker’s balls. You will drive him nuts. Asking questions about his record in the debates. making him expalin actions he took during Weld/Celluci. Actions you are well schooled in Christy.
Nobody will be listening to your rants in a Republican primary in August. But being one of four candidates, all legitimate, in October would be gold. Gold I tell ya. Gold!
