PLYMOUTH, Ma: Yesterday Plymouth Country Charter Commissioner and Republican candidate for Massachusetts’ new 9th Congressional district Christopher Sheldon did not receive the endorsement of the Cape Cod Times.
The Cape Cod Times in their endorsement of Adam Chaprales (Christopher Sheldon’s primary opponent) stated the following:
“During recent editorial board meetings with both GOP candidates, Sheldon was articulate and knowledgeable about several issues, but Chaprales was less ideological than Sheldon. Chaprales embraces more moderate views on immigration, gay marriage, even health care reform.
The article also stated,
“During recent debates, the two candidates sparred over funding for Planned Parenthood. Sheldon said he would eliminate funding for the program, while Chaprales said there are certain screenings offered for women through Planned Parenthood that should get federal money. At the same time, he said he does not support government funding of abortions.The two candidates also disagreed over immigration. Sheldon criticized Chaprales’ opposition as a selectman to an initiative that would have punished local businesses for hiring illegal immigrants.

After reading the article, Christopher Sheldon stated,

“While I think this article was meant to help my primary opponent, every opportunity that sheds light on his liberal policy stances only helps me.”
