Statement Regarding the Primary Election Results

I would like to thank everyone in Bristol County for their warm welcome and support over this year-long campaign. Unfortunately, it appears we have come up short.

I wish Paul well in the months to come. However, I cannot endorse him. I don't believe in blind party endorsements. I support individual leaders who I can trust and whose policies I can support.

During the campaign, I was not shy about expressing my issues with some of Paul's more extreme policies (as written in the Huffington Post) and with some of his and his supporters' conduct throughout the campaign.

In contrast, when I lost a close Primary in 2006 to Steve D'Amico (4th Bristol) after a good, clean race, I went door to door for him to help him win the general election. I do not feel I can do this with Paul.

Furthermore, while I strongly disagree with many of Tom Hodgson's policies, I have known him for many years and he has never been dishonest with me.

I look forward to watching the general election races and to supporting good individual leaders in November. May the best candidates for our County and Commonwealth win.

We need solutions, not politicians.
