BOSTON (AP) - Republican gubernatorial hopeful Mark Fisher is calling for a debate with fellow Republican candidate Charlie Baker prior to the GOP state convention.

Fisher, a Shrewsbury business owner and tea party member, needs the support of at least 15 percent of the delegates to the March 22 convention in Boston to advance to the Republican primary in September.

He told reporters following an appearance at Suffolk University Law School on Monday that he was seeking a head-to-head debate with Baker before delegates gather to cast their votes.

A spokesman for Baker responded that there would be time for debates later in the campaign.

Fisher said that while he has differences with Baker he would support the 2010 Republican gubernatorial nominee if he emerges with the party’s nomination again this year.
