Massachusetts Republican gubernatorial hopeful Charlie Baker has picked an openly gay running mate.
Baker announced that he had picked State Senate Minority Leader Richard Tisei on his campaign website and Facebook page.
"Richard has years of experience fighting for the taxpayer on Beacon Hill and I'm thrilled to have him on the team," Baker said in a statement.
"It is not exactly a news flash," Tisei said of his sexuality. "I don't think people really care these days."
