He’s then scheduled to meet privately with House Speaker Robert DeLeo, a Winthrop Democrat.

Baker has been meeting political leaders in the overwhelmingly Democrat-controlled state since his narrow victory over state Attorney General Martha Coakley on Nov. 4. Last week, he met with outgoing Gov. Deval Patrick and visited local politicians and business leaders in western and central Massachusetts.

Baker officially assumes the governor’s office in January. He previously served as Secretary of Health and Human Services and later Secretary of Administration and Finance under Republican governors William Weld and Paul Cellucci.
