Geoff Diehl secured the Republican nomination for governor and wasted no time pivoting from his primary victory to his next challenge: facing off against Maura Healey in the general election. The conservative former State Rep. launched into attacks against Healey during an acceptance speech Tuesday night in Weymouth, declaring Healey 'the people's worst nightmare' and the harbinger of a 'more expensive, more excessive and more restrictive' Massachusetts. Diehl criticized Healey's 'radical policies' including her support for legalizing driver's licenses for undocumented residents and her opposition to discrimination against transgender students in Massachusetts schools.
