The Westford Republican also said in a statement that he is disappointed that the Golnik campaign has cancelled a proposed debate between the two Republican candidates in the Third Congressional District.
With time running out before the Sept. 6 GOP Primary, tensions are flaring between the campaigns of Tom Weaver and Jon Golnik in the race to see who will face Niki Tsongas this fall for the Massachusetts Third Congressional District seat. Although the two candidates met on Monday in a debate hosted by the Lowell Sun, the Weaver campaign has issued a statement saying that the Golnik campaign has called them “unethical” and “unprofessional,” cancelling a proposed debate in the Greater Lawrence area. “I told my staff to post (on Facebook) that there was a radio debate with Tom Duggan (on) WCAP 980 AM, on Saturday (Aug. 4) between Jon Golnik and myself.” Weaver said. “I believe that it is important to let the public hear the candidates, we are…

In the race to see who will face Niki Tsongas this fall, both challengers have announced new supporters in their corner.
On the heels of Niki Tsongas’ impressive fundraising numbers, the two men seeking to challenge her directly this fall have just announced new endorsements for their campaigns.

New Balance, which is located in Lawrence in the Fifth District and is the only remaining athletic shoe manufacturer making shoes here from first stitch to final product. And yet, the U.S. military allows service members to buy footwear made across the globe.

Both Westford's Tom Weaver and Carlisle's Jon Golnik have been frequently using President Obama as a proxy target for their potential target in the fall, incumbent Niki Tsongas (D-Lowell).
While both Westford’s Tom Weaver and Carlisle’s Jon Golnik are battling to see who will be the Republican Party’s nominee against incumbent Niki Tsongas this fall, the tenor of rhetoric at both camps has been geared just as much at the White House as their potential fall opponent. With both camps sending out statements critical of last week’s “Obamacare” decision, that hasn’t been the only issue the new Third District’s Republican challengers have been discussing when it comes things in Washington other than Congress. Golnik took issue with the claim of executive privilege used by the President on the Fast and Furious program led by the Justice Department and Attorney General Eric Holder. “The idea that this President would involve …

In his personal life, Weaver …
