Fourth Congressional Race Picks Up Fall River Republican
Dentist David Steinhof from Fall River announced his candidacy for the seat formerly held by Barney Frank.
The race to replace retiring Barney Frank has grown again, as Republican David Steinhof, a dentist from Fall River, begins a run on the campaign trail.
From Steinhof's website:
People often ask why, as a dentist, I would consider running for office. The answer is simple. Our government is broken. Each and every day I see the enormous stress my patients have to endure in this current economy. We have all had to tighten our belts while our government continues to spend money we just don’t have.
Steinhof will be running against Republicans, Former Fourth District challenger Sean Bielat and Brookline School Committee member Elizabeth Childs.
Several Democrats have also thrown their hats into the race including Newton's Herb Robinson, Marty Farren, of Sharon, and Joseph Kennedy III, who recently received an endorsement from Newton Mayor Setti Warren.
