    I think, like Sununu, Baker has his eyes on a bigger prize. He’d lose against Warren in a presidential year in Mass (and if he didn’t, y’all can go fuck your so-called liberal selves). He seems like more of an executive type, less legislative, but I can’t claim to know him that well.
    Seems to have accomplished a lot for Massachusetts, which, barring a GOP trifecta in Washington come 2024 (not entirely out of the realm of possibility), he wouldn’t do in the Senate, outside of tax cuts.
    I really don't know what Baker wants now. I agree that he sees himself (and is) more of an executive than a legislator and even if he won the senate seat, he'd just be one of a bunch of freshman congress critters (albeit the Republican that unseat a Democrat in MA). He's eked out a position that's very vocally anti-Trump, so I don't see any future for him in the current iteration of the party. In fact he was likely not going to get any party assistance even if he won the nomination... which was not guaranteed since 2021 Republicans are, apparently, all completely bat**** insane.

    In an interview the other day he joked about how he didn't really have many hobbies and needed something to do so his wife wouldn't murder him. I also think governing during the pandemic and during the Trump administration really took a toll on him, and I wouldn't be surprised if he flitted off to Tahiti or Guam or somewhere wicked fah dude and re-evaluated his life.
    I gotta little bit of smoke and a whole lotta wine...

      In that case, even if she loses she still wins. Better to die a matyr than live a coward.

              i think fade and Kepler are right. It's one thing to send a black guy to Washington, it's another to let a black woman run your state. They'll be pulling out all of the stops on this. There is like a 10% chance she wins. And I might be being generous.

                    I am not saying they won't try...they will. But the thing is after they did that last time that is what lead to GA flipping Blue. The very people they tried to suppress waited in line for hours to vote and will do it again. It wasn't the White People electing a Jew and a Black Man...it was Black People who usually didn't vote that she and her crew got to the polls and have said they will be back again.

                    If it was anybody but her I would never bet on it. She knows how to get people to the polls and Kemp is hated by the Trumpers. If he is the nominee he won't be guaranteed their vote just like Perdue wasn't nor was Loeffler. Trumpers are like Nina Turner on crack they will burn anyone they deem disloyal.

                                I get that. But the point I'm (and likely the others) making is that they now know it's possible. GA in 2020.10 was a solid red state. It isn't now. THey know she's coming and they won't underestimate her.

                                I hope I'm wrong, obviously.
