Lively campaign for governor fails

Pastor Scott Lively got a third of voters to support his bid to oust a liberal governor but it was not enough (photo: Tim Pierce).

A pro-family, pro-life pastor has failed to win the Republican nomination for Massachusetts Governor.

There were high hopes for Pastor Scott Lively in the September vote, but incumbent Governor Charlie Baker spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on his campaign and the media highlighted Lively’s opposition to homosexuality. As a result, Baker, a Republican who has liberal views on marriage, gay rights and abortion, celebrated a comprehensive 64 per cent to 36 per cent win.
