BOSTON (AP) — Gov. Charlie Baker is planning on attending the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.

The Massachusetts Republican famously refused to support Trump during the campaign — even refused to vote for him after raising concerns about Trump’s temperament.

But Baker said Friday that if you’re the governor of Massachusetts and get invited to a presidential inauguration, you should go. Baker said he would go no matter who won out of respect for the office of the presidency.

A Baker aide said he accepted the invitation of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies to attend the swearing-in ceremonies, Jan. 20 in Washington.

Baker said he also hopes to chat with colleagues who work in state government from across the country as well as some of the new members of Congress.

    Well Mr.Baker… your state overwhelmingly voted for Ms. Clinton, and showed their revulsion of Mr. Trump….so go to D.C. and have fun and cosie up to your fellow republicians, but remember you will be an one term Govenor……I plan to work very hard to unseat you…….
