Mark Fisher, who is seeking the Republican nomination, is the owner of the Auburn-based metal manufacturing company, Merchant's Fabrication. At the Massachusetts Republican Convention earlier this year in Boston, the party said Fisher failed to meet the threshold to be on the primary ballot by six votes. Fisher's camp charged that there were irregularities in the voting and that the party was cheating him out of a primary bid.

In May, a judge ordered the Tea Party candidate's name to be included on the Republican primary ballot. He joins us to tell talk about his run for the corner office, as well as what separates him from fellow Republican Charlie Baker.
