NEW: Prominent Republicans Endorse Brendan Doherty for Congress

Wednesday, November 02, 2011


The Doherty for Congress Campaign today announced that Brendan Doherty has been endorsed for election to the U.S. House of Representatives from Rhode Island's First Congressional District by former Governor Donald Carcieri and several other notable Rhode Island Republicans, each of whom has held elected office and/or a leadership position within the RI Republican Party.

Joining Governor Carcieri in endorsing Doherty are Bernard Jackvony, former Rhode Island Lieutenant Governor and former RI GOP Chairman, and Carol Mumford, former Rhode Island Representative and current National Committeewoman for the RI GOP. Also announcing his endorsement for Doherty was former Chairman of the RI Republican Party, John Holmes.

“I am honored to receive the endorsements of these dedicated officials and I am grateful for the tremendous support I am receiving from Governor Carcieri and other leaders of the RI Republican Party,” stated Doherty. “Having worked closely with Governor Carcieri, I saw first hand the importance of electing men and women who are honest and dedicated to their principles and I intend to take those lessons to Washington to represent the people of Rhode Island’s First Congressional District,” continued Doherty.

In announcing her endorsement, Representative Mumford called Doherty as “a man of proven integrity who will help to restore balance and order to Congress.” “Rhode Island’s Representative should be a leader who by his very presence brings discipline and principle to the floor of the United States House of Representatives. With his personal code of ethics and adherence to truth, Brendan Doherty is indeed, Rhode Island’s man for all seasons,” concluded Mumford.
