Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker isn't ready to say who he's voting for on Super Tuesday. But he made it clear that it's not President Donald Trump.

The Republican governor was asked during a media availability Wednesday who he plans to vote for, but didn't have an immediate answer.

"We'll be able to talk about that sometime between now and then," Baker said of the March 3 primary.

"As I've said many times, I didn't vote for the president last time, and I'm not going to vote for him this time," he quickly added.

Baker is no fan of the president. In 2016, he opted not to cast a ballot in the presidential race rather than vote for Trump. Since then, he's often publicly opposed Trump's policies.

Among the other choices on the Republican side of the ballot is former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld. Baker served in Weld's cabinet as secretary of health and human services in the 1990s but said last year that he wasn't ready to throw his support behind his former boss.

And though former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has dropped out of the race for the Democratic nomination, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts is still in the running.

Massachusetts is one of many communities holding primaries on Super Tuesday.
