BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker is getting the bobblehead treatment for his response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum in Milwaukee on Thursday unveiled a Baker bobblehead doll and said $5 from the $25 cost of each one will be donated to the Protect The Heroes fund’s 100 Million Mask Challenge that pays for protective equipment for health care workers nationwide.
Sales of bobbleheads featuring Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Deborah Birx, several other governors and others have raised $275,000 for the challenge.
The Baker bobblehead features the Republican governor, wearing a blue shirt and light blue tie, standing at a podium that bears the state flag.
A July poll found that 81% of registered voters approved of Baker’s handling of the pandemic, according to the Hall of Fame.
“We received a lot of requests to make a bobblehead of Governor Baker and other governors who have been instrumental in the continued fight against COVID-19, so we’re excited to be releasing his bobblehead today,” Hall of Fame cofounder and CEO Phil Sklar said in a statement.
A email seeking comment was left with the governor’s office.
