Duxbury: Publisher will try again for State Rep. seat

A Duxbury newspaper publisher says that he plans to run again as the Democratic challenger to Republican Daniel Webster for his seat in the state House of Representatives.

Josh Cutler says he will not be make anything official until the spring. Cutler, in an email to supporters, says he will host a formal launch then, but today is asking them to help kick start his campaign for State Representative, with a financial contribution.

In his email to supporters, Cutler, who lost to Webster last November, said “while a narrow loss to a tea-party backed incumbent was disappointing, it certainly didn’t diminish my passion for public service.”

Rep. Dan Webster says he will definitely seek re-election.

Last year, Webster and Cutler split the four towns in the 6th District–with Webster winning the race by just over 500 votes. An unofficial count had Webster with 9,295 votes to 8,792 for Cutler. The district include all of Pembroke, Hanson, precinct 2-5 in Duxbury and precinct 2 in Halifax.
