Final Governor Debate Recap
The Hiller Instinct: Final Governor Debate Recap
It couldn't be much clearer.
I'm calling Charlie Baker the winner because this was his strongest debate performance, though he certainly took heat on the Big Dig. Baker was much more tonight than just an angry Republican, he was gubernatorial.
If Baker wins, then political reality says Deval Patrick loses, even though the governor didn't make any mistakes. To me, Patrick seemed more cautious, and less urgent than usual.
I don't think the governor lost any votes, but I do think Charlie Baker may have won some.
If I'm right, then a race that's too close to call just got closer.
I'm Andy Hiller, and that's my instinct.
