Hillary Chabot wrote follow-up article in today’s Boston Herald noting the defense of MassGOP Chairman Jennifer Nassour by many Republicans.
Coming to Nassour’s defense in the article are former Congressional candidate, State Rep. Jeff Perry & Richard Tisei, former Senate Minority Leader & recent candidate for Lieutenant Governor.
State Rep. Jeff Perry (R-Sandwich), who failed in his bid to win an open seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, said Nassour has done the best she could for the party.
“I think the party in Massachusetts is heading in a new direction, and I think it’s going to get better as we head into the next election,” Perry said. He said he doesn’t blame Nassour for his defeat.
“At the end of the day, not to diminish the role of party chair, elections are about candidates,” said Perry, who lost to Norfolk District Attorney William Keating in the race for departing U.S. Rep. William Delahunt’s seat.
“The expectations were high and some people tended to forget that the party doesn’t have a strong infrastructure. Correcting that isn’t something you can do in a year,” Tisei said.
