Republican gubernatorial candidate Mark R. Fisher struck back defiantly at his party’s leaders Wednesday, asserting that they offered him a $1 million payoff to end his candidacy long before he filed suit against them.
As far back as December, Fisher said, a Republican State Committee member offered him $1 million in campaign funds to end his campaign against the GOP’s leading candidate for governor, Charlie Baker.
“They approached us,” Fisher told the Globe. “They were offering us money to get out of the race.”
Fisher declined to specify who made the offer, but said he would detail his accusations at a press conference Thursday.
“There’s going to be some fireworks,” said his campaign manager, Debbie McCarthy.
