MassGOP Chairman Lyons’ Releases Statement Regarding Former Governor Bill Weld’s Presidential Announcement

BOSTON – Early this morning, after trying to reclaim a place in the Republican Party, former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld announced a grandstanding political gambit that reeks of political opportunism. His self-seeking ploy to divide Republicans will fail.

“Weld is the same ex-Republican who deserted Massachusetts for New York; who endorsed President Barack Obama over Senator John McCain for President; who renounced the GOP for the Libertarian Party; who ran against the Trump-Pence Republican ticket in 2016, while cozying up to Democrat Hillary Clinton,” said MassGOP Chairman Jim Lyons. ” After abandoning Republicans, Democrats, and Libertarians, Weld demands that faithful Republicans consider him as their standard bearer. Even Benedict Arnold switched allegiances less often! We Republicans will put partisanship aside, reach across the aisle to Democrats, and Libertarians, and reject Bill Weld.”
