Welcome to the penultimate column of the 2012 election season!
I’ll be taking next week off for some much-needed time in a deep coma, so see you back here after the election for some final analysis, but for the nonce…
Eric R. Steinhilber has picked up a few endorsements from assorted Barnstable County officials (and, I’m sure not coincidentally, fellow Republicans), including Sheriff James M. Cummings, Special Sheriff (and former state rep) Jeffrey D. Perry, Cape & Islands DA Michael O’Keefe, Clerk of Courts Scott W. Nickerson, and Clerk of Probate Anastasia Welsh Perrino.
In other obvious political endorsements, State Representative David T. Vieira (R – Falmouth) has endorsed fellow Republican Christopher Sheldon of Plymouth for US Representative of the Ninth District.
Finally, Thomas F. Keyes, Republican candidate for State Senator of the Plymouth and Barnstable District, picked up an endorsement from New Jobs for Massachusetts, a “public policy advocate for rapid growth in private sector employment” in the state.
