“Gov. Charlie Baker said today he will seek re-election in 2018, confirming the long-held belief he’d seek a second term with an early-morning, no-frills announcement.

Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito won’t make a formal campaign launch until next year, according to Jim Conroy, Baker’s top political aide and the manager of his 2014 campaign.

‘The Governor and Lt. Governor intend to seek re-election, and will begin to build a campaign organization over the coming months,’ Conroy said in a statement. ‘With election day still a year away, the Governor and Lt. Governor remain focused on the bipartisan work they were elected to do.’”
