Independent gubernatorial candidate Timothy Cahill, who has seen top aides defect from his campaign, is now losing his running mate.

Paul Loscocco today will announce he is dropping off the ticket and will endorse Charles Baker, the Republican candidate, the Boston Globe has learned.

Amy Birmingham, Cahill’s spokesowman, did not immediately return calls seeking comment on Loscocco’s defection.

Loscocco is scheduled to meet with reporters at Baker’s South Boston headquarters at 11 a.m. today, according to Baker’s campaign.

“I ran to have a spirited debate on the issues and to advocate for new ways to create jobs, lower taxes, protect personal freedoms, and fight for the principles of Ronald Reagan who inspired me to become a Republican as a young man,” according to a Loscocco statement released this morning.
