Massachusetts' Republican Gov. reveals he left presidential ballot blank
Trump campaign slams Biden for saying president will try to steal the election
Democrats have been trying to undermine election integrity Trump 2020 press communications director Erin Perinne told ‘Outnumbered Overtime.’
Massachusetts’ GOP Gov. Charlie Baker said Tuesday that he did not vote for a presidential candidate.
“I blanked it,” he told reporters, according to Mass Live.
Baker also declined to support his party’s leader in 2016, casting a blank ballot then, too.
Baker joined a small list of Republican governors from blue states who said earlier this month they wouldn’t vote for Trump.
The two-term governor, who enjoys broad bipartisan support in left-leaning Massachusetts, is up for reelection in 2022.

In September, President Trump issued a tweet that called Baker a "RINO," or "Republican In Name Only."
“RINO Governor Charlie Baker of Massachusetts is unsuccessfully trying to defend Mail In Ballots, when there is fraud being found all over the place," Trump said. "Just look at some of the recent races, or the Trump Ballots in Pennsylvania that were thrown into the garbage. Wrong Charlie!”
Gov. Phil Scott of Vermont, a fellow New England Republican governor, also signaled he wouldn’t be voting for Trump earlier this month, but said he hadn’t decided if he’d be voting for Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
