PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Charlie Baker will be the next governor. But, there was another winner Tuesday night — independent Evan Falchuk.   Falchuk received 3.3 percent of the vote, hitting the threshold to have his United Independent Party legally recognized as a political party.    "It's an amazing thing. There were so many people who said it couldn't be done," Falchuk said on Wednesday afternoon.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Martha Coakley ended a swing through the state on Saturday by toasting a title she hopes to claim on Nov. 4: Governor Coakley.

The Drury High School graduate vowed she hasn't — and wouldn't — forget her home county to the small group gathered in the courtyard of the Freight Yard Pub.

"I promise you, as your governor, if you help me get elected, and I know we can do this, I will have your back," the Democratic candidate said.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — The gubernatorial candidates are viewing Monday's debate as the true beginning of the campaign for the corner office on Beacon Hill.   Most of the five candidates have been on the trail for more than a year either to win primaries or get a head start in an independent campaign.
