PRESS RELEASE: DNC Member David O’Brien Endorses Rufus Gifford for Congress

LOWELL—Rufus Gifford, Democratic candidate for Congress in Massachusetts’ 3rd District, today welcomed an endorsement from David O’Brien, a Democratic National Committee Member from Concord, Mass.

“As someone who has been involved in Democratic politics in Massachusetts for a while, I know several of the candidates in this race, and have stayed on the sidelines, until I met Rufus Gifford just recently. I’m all-in for Rufus” O’Brien said. “When there are a lot of political attacks and negativity swirling around, I give Rufus a lot of credit for rising above the noise and maintaining his positive approach to politics. He’s running an optimistic campaign focused on connecting with people and working to provide solutions. As former Governor Deval Patrick’s political director, I know firsthand that Rufus’ approach is similar to Governor Patrick’s – people want candidates with backbone, who actually ‘stand for something’ rather than just ‘against something’”

I am thrilled to earn David’s endorsement,” said Gifford. “As we head into these final days before the primary, I am so grateful to have him in our corner, and am looking forward to working together.”
