Jake Auchincloss, candidate for Ward 2 alderman at-large, today was endorsed by fellow marine Congressman Seth Moulton, (D-Salem). Auchincloss provided the following quote from Moulton (I am awaiting confirmation from Moulton’s communications person but I have no reason to believe it’s not authentic):
“Jake’s positive, policy-oriented campaign is exactly what voters are seeking in a polarized political climate.” – Cong. Moulton (D-MA)
I can’t remember an endorsement from a congressman in a race for alderman, albeit a congressman from another district. Does anybody remember Barney Frank endorsing in a local legislative race?
Will this endorsement from a Democratic congressman help Jake?
