McNamara Endorses Diehl

Braintree, MA … Today Representative Geoff Diehl, the endorsed Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, announced that he has received the endorsement of former U.S. Attorney Frank McNamara.

“I am proud Frank McNamara is supporting my candidacy,” said Diehl. “This is another major law & order endorsement for our campaign against Senator Elizabeth Warren. It shows that I am the candidate who will follow the law and make public safety a priority.”

McNamara was appointed as the U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts by President Ronald Reagan and confirmed by a Democrat-controlled Senate. After serving in the Reagan Justice Department, he founded the firm McNamara & Associates. He is a graduate of Harvard College and The University of Virginia School of Law. During the Vietnam War, he served as an officer in the U. S. Navy and was involved in combat operations in the course of two deployments. He and his lovely wife, Elizabeth, have 12 children and live in Bolton. In 1982, he ran for Congress against then House Speaker, Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill.

“At a time when a lethargic and selfish Political Class is being everywhere exposed and overthrown, one is compelled to ask: Isn’t it about time for an in-bred and homogenous Massachusetts Congressional Delegation to make room for one, just one, energetic and reform-minded Republican?” McNamara said. “Some diversity in representation would be desirable even were we living under a Golden Age of Pericles”, he added, “and I should think that variety and freedom from one-party hegemony would be all the more necessary now, given the parlous state of our civic health.”

“The elitist, collectivist Left is amply represented in Washington. We have no need of one more “leader” who will be led around by the nose by the Boston Globe in frantic pursuit of the latest politically correct fad. What Massachusetts really needs in Washington is a steady representative who will champion the needs and aspirations of the ordinary citizen who thirsts for smaller government, lower taxes, a simplified tax code, a strengthening of public safety, and a wealth-generating economy. Geoff Diehl is that person, and I am happy to endorse his candidacy for the United States Senate,” enthused McNamara.

“Comparisons are odious, but Senator Warren invites them, particularly with her repeated demonstrations that she is more interested in running for President than in protecting the people of the Commonwealth, something she did last week while engaging in demagoguery at a rally in support of making Massachusetts a sanctuary state,” said McNamara. “Worse, if that’s possible, Senator Warren more recently called for the abolition of ICE. While the Senator’s lately-acquired interest in eliminating federal bureaucracies is to be encouraged, as a husband, father, and citizen concerned with public safety, I would suggest that there are other bloated ones more deserving of her attention than ICE,” remarked McNamara. “It is woolly-headed posturing like this that makes it even more critical to elect Geoff Diehl,” he concluded.

Diehl is the only candidate with comprehensive plans to end illegal immigration and fight the opioid epidemic plaguing Massachusetts.

“If Senator Warren truly cared about our state, she would have never called for abolishing ICE. We have a drug addiction epidemic. We need to get the drug dealers off our streets. It is time for ICE and local police to work together to keep our streets safe,” said Diehl.

Diehl has also received the endorsement of former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan.

Since winning the Republican convention by 30 points Diehl’s list of endorsers has been growing. His supporters now include: the Watertown Republican Town Committee, the Hanson Republican Town Committee, the Bourne Republican Town Committee, the East Bridgewater Republican Town Committee, the Dighton Republican Town Committee, Boston Ward 9 Republican Committee, the Somerville Republican City Committee, the Whitman Republican Town Committee, the Dracut Republican Town Committee, Representatives David DeCoste, Marc Lombardo, Jim Lyons, Shaunna O’Connell, Lenny Mirra, Nick Boldyga, and Peter Durant, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Youth Conservatives of Massachusetts, all of the Sudbury delegates to the convention, former New England Patriots Fred Smerlas, Steve Grogan, and Matt Light, Red Sox Champion Curt Schilling, comedian Lenny Clarke and broadcaster John Dennis, to name a few.  Diehl was the first candidate to receive a major law enforcement endorsement. The Norfolk County Correction Officers have thrown their weight behind Diehl.
