BOSTON- MassGOP Chairman Kirsten Hughes issued the following statement concerning the special election for U.S. Senate:
“The Massachusetts Republican Party is optimistic about the special election for U.S. Senate because of the strength, character and accomplishments of the many potential candidates who are today considering their political futures. The fact is the Democratic Party will field a mediocre congressman with a highly partisan record who has been part of the Washington gridlock. A Republican Senator from Massachusetts will offer the bipartisan leadership to solve our nation’s problems.
“Members of our party have an unparalleled level of energy and commitment to the Republican cause. This special election will unite us in the shared purpose of again electing a Republican to the United States Senate. We shocked the world in 2010, and united, we can do it again.”
