Cahill: Loscocco Will Get Nothing If Elected L.G.

Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Timothy Cahill says he'll deny former running mate Paul Loscocco staff, office space and the chance of ever claiming the title "acting governor" if he wins next week.

In an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Cahill said he wouldn't take out-of-state vacations for the next four years to ensure Loscocco never replaced him as governor.

Loscocco didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Loscocco's name still appears next to Cahill's on the ballot, even after he enraged Cahill and his supporters by announcing Oct. 1 that he was quitting their campaign and endorsing Republican rival Charles Baker.

Loscocco says Cahill can't win, and continuing only boosts the re-election prospects of Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick.

While Cahill says he would demand Loscocco's resignation, he can't force it.
