Geoff Diehl Embraces Extreme Right-Wing Governor Kristi Noem

BOSTON – Chair of the Massachusetts Democratic Party Gus Bickford issued the following statement ahead of Republican gubernatorial candidate Geoff Diehl’s fundraiser with South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem on Wednesday:

“By campaigning with Kristi Noem, Geoff Diehl is telling Massachusetts voters all they need to know about his extreme right-wing vision for Massachusetts. Noem supports a near-total abortion ban, thinks marriage equality should be up for debate, and refused to expand health care coverage for thousands of residents. Massachusetts deserves better than Geoff Diehl and Kristi Noem.”
