Patrick, Baker In Final Push In Tight Governor’s Race

BOSTON (CBS/AP) – The candidates for governor visited train stations and local restaurants in a final search for pivotal votes on the eve of Election Day.

Republican Charlie Baker shook hands with commuters at the Beverly Depot train station early Monday.

Not to be outdone, independent candidate Tim Cahill greeted commuters pouring out of South Station.

Baker held his final rally before Election Day in Swampscott Monday evening.

 WBZ News Radio’s Carl Stevens talked to Baker.

Governor Deval Patrick made an early stop at the WBZ studios this morning.

 WBZ News Radio’s Karen Twomey spoke with Patrick.

Gov. Patrick made one more swing through urban centers — working from New Bedford up through Marlborough and Worcester and on to Lowell — before wrapping up his day at a rally in his hometown of Milton.

Green-Rainbow Party gubernatorial candidate Jill Stein held a rally in Pittsfield Monday afternoon.

Recent polls show a close race between Patrick and Baker, with Cahill a distant third and Stein in the single digits.
