Hamilton, MA … Today Representative Geoff Diehl, the endorsed Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, announced that he has received the endorsement of former Representative Forrester Tim Clark.
“I am proud to receive Tim’s endorsement. He honorably served the people of the 4th Essex District for many years. Tim fought for fiscal accountability and a lower tax burden. His strong support will help us when Essex County,” said Diehl.
“In my opinion Geoff is the best qualified candidate to serve us in the United States Senate. I admire his work on repealing automatic gas tax hikes –saving us billions of dollars. Geoff is the only candidate with a proven track record of standing up to the special interest groups,” said Clark. “I am pleased to endorse his candidacy.”
Clark served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives for over 18 years. In 1996 he was the Republican nominee for State Auditor. Prior to serving in the House, Clark was a Hamilton Selectman.
“Geoff is dedicated to putting Massachusetts first. He is the person we can count on to roll up his sleeves to put in the long hours to make a positive difference,” added Clark.
“Massachusetts is too great for a part-time Senator. We need a Senator who will focus on the citizens of the Commonwealth,” said Diehl. “From the time you wake up in the morning and until you go to bed in the evening you should be working to help the people of Massachusetts. I think people should come first ahead of oneself. Our Senator needs to do their job by putting you first!”
Diehl is disappointed with Senator Warren who is more focused on her national profile rather than working in the best interest of Massachusetts. One key example of this, Diehl pointed out, was how she voted against the 21st Century Cures Act.
“If she cared about our state, she wouldn’t have voted against a bipartisan measure to promote medical innovation and the development of new treatments for cancer and other diseases. Massachusetts is a medical research leader and she still voted against the bill,” said Diehl. “Moreover, Warren would have voted to shutdown government.”
Diehl won the Republican convention by a thirty point margin. He has been earning many endorsements including: 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 Clark, Shaunna O’Connell, Nick Boldyga and Peter Durant, 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 Clark 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.
