Republican Fisher enters Mass. race for governor
SHREWSBURY, Mass. (AP) — A Shrewsbury business owner says he is seeking the Republican nomination for governor in Massachusetts.
Mark Fisher, who has never sought elective office, announced his candidacy in a recent press release.
Charles Baker, the former head of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and the 2010 GOP nominee for governor, is running again for the office.
Fisher said his first priority as governor would be to remove all tolls on the Massachusetts Turnpike.
On his website, Fisher describes himself as a member of the tea party and a political outsider.
He reported a campaign account balance of just under $45,000 in a filing this past week with the state Office of Campaign and Political Finance.
