The Governor's race is heating up. Republican businessman Charlie Baker announced his run for Massachusetts Governor in a two minute web video. This will be Baker's second tilt at the post;  he lost the 2010 gubernatorial race to Deval Patrick.

Charlie Baker is the former head of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and served eight years in state government as human services secretary and budget chief for former Republican Governors Paul Cellucci and William Weld.
