BOSTON (AP) – Former President Donald Trump has endorsed Geoff Diehl, a former Republican state representative, for governor of Massachusetts in 2022.

The state’s current governor, fellow Republican Charlie Baker, hasn’t yet said if he plans to run for a third term.

In a statement released Tuesday, Trump called Diehl “a true patriot,” while bashing Baker, calling him a “RINO”–or Republican In Name Only–who has done nothing for the Republican Party.

During a stop in Salem on Wednesday, Baker said he’s focused on the needs of Massachusetts, beginning with the ongoing pandemic, but didn’t say whether he’d run again.
