Evan Falchuk created the United Independent Party at the beginning of this year, and launched his bid a month later. He is pushing for a three-party system in Massachusetts and is trying to get enough votes to bring this new party up to that status.

To do that, he needs to get at least 3 percent of the vote in the 2014 election.

Listen to all of our conversations with the gubernatorial candidates.

Guest

Evan Falchuk, attorney and former president of the global health firm Best Doctors, Inc. and the only independent candidate for governor.

Radio Boston Republican Charlie Baker: “You need to focus on where you want to go. What’s your path? What’s your vision? Where do you want to take the state? And that’s why this time, I’m going to focus a lot more on the fact that I think we can do better. I think we should be great.”
