Dan Webster is elected as the Republican nominee for State Representative in the 6th Plymouth district despite efforts by a write-in candidate.
“We had a lot of volunteers, we worked the phones, we worked our friends, we worked our neighbors, we got people to the polls, and we reminded them of the good conservative message that I bring to Beacon Hill each and every time I get re-elected,” says Webster
Webster has been State Representative for the 6th Plymouth district for the last ten years. The district now includes Pembroke, Hanson, and Duxbury.
He was challenged by his former aide, Karen Barry, and the race shaped up to be a tight one.
As voting results filtered in throughout the night, the amount of write-in votes were neck and neck with votes for Webster but by 9:30, Webster claimed victory, “The rough numbers are in, there’s still some write-in ballots that haven’t been counted yet but it looks to be that we won by about 314 votes.”
Although Barry kept hope for a while longer, she eventually congratulated Webster on winning the Republican primary election, “I believe that all of us that are conservative leaning Republicans and unenrolleds support Representative Webster because of his long record of voting so well and we’re going to move forward to November. I wish him the best of luck.”
Webster’s next hurtle will be November’s election where he is challenged again by Josh Cutler who is the Democratic nominee for the State Representative 6th Plymouth district.
