Election Day is right around the corner, and the candidates vying to become Attleboro and Seekonk's next representative in the U.S. House of Representatives are making their final stops prior to the Thursday primary. One of the candidates, Republican Sean Bielat, was in Attleboro Tuesday evening.
Bielat, 37, spoke to a small group at the train station on Union Street. He was introduced by state Rep. George Ross (R-Attleboro). After Bielat answered some questions, state Senate candidate Jeff Bailey spoke about his campaign. Bailey is the only Republican challenging Democratic Sen. James Timilty, so neither of those candidates has to worry about the primary election.
Bielat faces two challengers—Elizabeth Childs and David Steinhof—in the contest to become the Republican nominee for the 4th District seat. The winner will face the Democratic nominee, most likely Joseph Kennedy III, in November.
