Jon Fetherston of Ashland, today, ended his campaign for the US Senate seat and endorsed Michael Sullivan for US Senate. His press release can be seen below.
Today Jon Fetherston of Ashland announces he has ceased obtaining the 10,000 certified signatures to be on the Special Election Republican Primary ballot in April to be your next United States Senator. Citing the short turn-around time, inclement weather, and another excellent candidate joining the race, Mr. Fetherston has chosen to do what is best for his supporters and Massachusetts by fully supporting the candidacy of Michael Sullivan of Abington, Ma.
After conferring with several of Mr. Sullivan's campaign leaders, Mr. Fetherston is asking all his supporters and others to help Michael Sullivan obtain the required 10,000 certified signatures to be on the Republican Primary ballot in April. Mr. Sullivan is the most qualified Republican candidate running due to his experience as a Massachusetts State Representative, District Attorney, US Attorney, and acting Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. This experience plus his integrity and energy make him an ideal Senator to represent Massachusetts.
Mr. Fetherston also wishes to thank the many people who encouraged and supported him in this effort.
