A republican candidate in the race for the 9th congressional district is getting support from a republican state senator.
Plymouth Republican Chris Sheldon announced yesterday he has the support of republican Robert Hedlund of Weymouth. Hedlund confirms he is supporting Sheldon.
“I was happy to lend my support to Chris Sheldon who is running for Congress. He is working hard. I’ve got to know Chris over the last few years and he believes in the same things I believe in; limiting government and working to retire the tremendous, crushing debt burden that the federal government is running”
Hedlund says among the issues they both have similar views on, the role of the federal government in the public’s daily lives.
“We have to get people working, we have to have a sound economy, and not continue putting our grandchildren and great grandchildren deeper into debt”
Hedlund says he chose Sheldon over Republican Candidate Adam Chaprales, a former Cape Cod Selectmen, who Hedlund says he has never met.
Sheldon and Chaprales are on Thursday’s republican primary ballot, as they look to get the nomination to battle the democrats in November’s general election.
