9th Congressional District: Republican race goes to Chris Sheldon

It looks like the race for the Republican ticket in the ninth Congressional District has been resolved.

According to numbers released by the Secretary of State’s office Tuesday, candidate Christopher Sheldon received 11,046 votes. Adam Chaprales had 10,967 votes.

Chaprales issued this statement yesterday: “I am disappointed to learn of this result, but I immediately called Chris Sheldon to congratulate him on a hard-fought race and to pledge him my full support in the general election. I am also notifying the Secretary of State that I am releasing the Sheldon campaign from its request to have certain votes recounted, out of my belief that a recount would not serve the best interest of the municipal governments that would need to fund it or the Republican Party as it chooses a nominee.”

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
