BOSTON (AP) - Gov. Charlie Baker says he considers former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld a mentor and friend, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be voting for the fellow Republican.

Weld is hoping to run for vice president on the Libertarian Party ticket and Baker served under Weld as health and human services secretary and budget chief.

Baker said Friday that those who’ve known Weld for a long time know never to be surprised by anything he does. But Baker isn’t a fan of a lot of the Libertarian Party’s positions, including its endorsement of recreational drug use.

Baker has said he won’t vote for presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump and won’t likely cast a ballot in the race at all. Instead, he’ll focus on state ballot questions and down ticket races.
