Outsider Businessman John Kingston Rolls into Republican U.S. Senate Primary
For Immediate Release:
Republican U.S. Senate candidate John Kingston notched a strong performance at the MassGOP Convention Saturday in Worcester, qualifying for the GOP Primary on Sept. 4. Kingston received 19 percent of the vote, surpassing the 15 percent required to qualify for the Republican Primary ballot.
“Today, we took a gigantic step toward retiring Sen. Warren and her toxic brand of Washington politics,” Kingston said.
“I am incredibly honored by the support I received from so many Republican leaders, activists, and supporters who form the backbone of our party,” Kingston continued. “Together, we will bring fundamental change to Washington and a senator focused on delivering results for hardworking Massachusetts families – not advancing their own political career.”
Kingston enters the Republican Primary with a massive advantage in manpower and resources. Kingston’s campaign has more than 20 full-time staff, a well-organized ground game and more than $3 million cash-on-hand – more than 31 times the war chest of Beth Lindstrom and more than 13 times that of State Rep. Geoff Diehl.
“I am the only Republican with the manpower and message to defeat Sen. Warren, and I look forward to delivering our party this victory in November,” Kingston said.
Kingston’s performance at the MassGOP Convention Saturday is especially impressive given his status as a true political outsider.
“Our strong performance at the convention Saturday, despite being a true political outsider running against two candidates deeply entrenched in the political system, is a testament to the strength of our message and organization,” Kingston said.
