The state primary election is just a few days away, and among the two Republicans running, Charlie Baker is considered the heavy favorite.

But Baker does have a challenger: businessman Mark Fisher — a self-described Tea Party Republican who's waging a long-shot bid to become the chief executive in this very blue state.

"If things were going well in Massachusetts, running as a Republican, I wouldn't have a chance to win as dog catcher," said Fisher. "But I'm saying no — things are terribly wrong. I think we're becoming dysfunctional."
