With the Massachusetts primary just a few days away, WBUR's Bob Oakes catches up with Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker at a campaign event in Lincoln.

This is the second bid at the state's corner office for Baker, who lost to Deval Patrick in 2010. The former CEO of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care held cabinet positions under Republican Gov. William Weld and Paul Cellucci.

Massachusetts has not had a Republican governor in more than a decade.

This segment aired on September 3, 2014.
