Republican in Massachusetts governor’s race stops short of victory declaration

BOSTON (Reuters) – Republican Charlie Baker, who Boston media outlets said notched a narrow victory over Democrat Martha Coakley in the race for Massachusetts governor on Tuesday, told supporters overnight he would wait until morning to declare victory.

Addressing a Boston ballroom at 1:20 a.m. EST (0620 GMT) Wednesday morning, more than five hours after polls closed, Baker said he had spoken with his rival and the two had agreed to allow state officials to finish counting all ballots before declaring an outcome to the race.
