SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Election Day is now just a little more than a week away, and candidates for governor are busy touring the state to sway undecided voters. Candidate Evan Falchuk traveled to western Massachusetts Friday to meet with voters in Springfield.
Following an early morning radio interview, Falchuk went to the Latino Chamber of Commerce on Main Street in the North End of Springfield. In the late morning, he will speak with residents at Keystone Woods Senior Living in Springfield, before touring the Indian Orchard Mills complex in the afternoon.
One of five candidates on the ballot in November, Falchuk is running under the the United Independent Party, which he created. He has said that he hopes voters see they have options beyond the Democratic and Republican parties, and has run television advertisements asking voters whether they really feel inspired by Republican Charlie Baker or Democrat Martha Coakley.
In additon to Falchuk, Baker, and Coakley, independents Jeffrey McCormick and Scott Lively are also running for governor.
