THE SHOT — Massachusetts State Sen. Richard Tisei — the gay Republican selected as gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker’s running mate in an effort to reach Democrats and moderates — “greets a supporter” at an event in Wakefield. Says Baker: Having a No. 2 “is sort of an issue . . . but it’s nowhere near as important as the other stuff.” (Photo: Pat Greenhouse/Boston Globe)
