BOSTON (AP) — Businessman Chris Doughty has released a video saying that he is seeking the Republican nomination for governor of Massachusetts.

Doughty, in the video released Wednesday, touted his success creating jobs as the president of a Wrentham company that manufactures metal machine parts.

He said he will bring the same work ethic and teamwork that helped him build a business to the governor’s office.

He called for making Massachusetts more affordable, protecting businesses, recruiting high-paying jobs to the state, and making Massachusetts an educational leader.

Doughty is seen as a moderate alternative to the other Republican who has announced a run, former state lawmaker Geoff Diehl.
