BOSTON (AP) - Republican Gov. Charlie Baker has confirmed that he will seek a second four-year term as Massachusetts' chief executive.
    
Baker said Tuesday on Twitter and later during a scheduled appearance in Worcester that he and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito plan to run for re-election in 2018.
    
Jim Conroy, a senior political advisor to the governor, said earlier Tuesday that a formal campaign launch will come sometime after the first of the year.
    
The governor has maintained a brisk fundraising pace. His campaign account reported a mid-November balance of just under $7 million.
    
That gives the moderate Republican a huge early advantage over the three announced Democratic candidates for governor.
