MASSACHUSETTS DEMOCRATS CELEBRATE FEENEY PRIMARY WIN
BOSTON – Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford released the following statement in response to today’s primary special election for the Bristol and Norfolk State Senate district:
“Paul Feeney has been a strong progressive champion for the working families and residents of Massachusetts throughout his career and will continue to stand up for the issues most important in the Bristol and Norfolk senate district, including fighting for more funding for public education and tackling the opioid crisis.
“The people of Attleboro, Foxborough, Mansfield, Medfield, Norton, Rehoboth, Sharon, Seekonk, and Walpole were fortunate to have two strong Democratic candidates run and we commend Ted Philips on his efforts and dedication to the area.
“Massachusetts Democrats are committed to standing with Paul and waging a strong, grassroots campaign to keep this seat blue to ensure working families and the middle class in the district have a strong voice in the Senate.”
