Republican Robert May Challenging Seth Moulton For Congressional Seat

January 26, 2022

Peabody resident Robert May won’t run for state representative this year; he’s running for Congress.

The Republican, who ran in the 13th Essex District in 2020, is runnning in the state’s Sixth Congressional District north of Boston this year. His opponent: U.S. Representative Seth Moulton (D-Salem).

“When you look at how the Democrats have presided over the worst rate of inflation in 40 years, coupled with their indifference to small business owners like myself, the biggest difference Americans can make is to get involved ourselves,” May said in a press release on Tuesday, January 25. “It’s easy to sit on the sidelines and complain about the current state of affairs, but I am getting in the game because I believe it’s up to We The People to end the status quo in Washington.” 

May runs an electrical components business in Newburyport called Techsource Thermal Solutions. He is married and has four children.

May said that he’s running for Congress because Moulton wants to be president and the people of the Sixth District should have someone interested in representing their needs.

“Rep. Moulton continues to promote the demonization of American industries in order to distract from the truth:  the Democrats’ monetary policies have devalued the dollar, and are a direct result of the inflation now crippling American households,” May said. “On Capitol Hill, Rep. Moulton isn’t known for representing his district’s interests, but for once leading the effort to replace House Speaker Nancy Pelosi —- incredibly, because he thinks she isn’t far-left enough. 

“My campaign is about providing North Shore residents with a seat at the table, giving them their deserved representation in Congress, and ensuring that if the government isn’t working for them, it should simply get out of the way.”

In 2020, May ran for state representative in the 13th Essex District in what ended up being a five-candidate race. Democrat Sally Kerans of Danvers won the race with 46.1 percent of the vote; May got 36.9 percent of the vote. There were also three unenrolled candidates in the race who each got less than 10 percent of the vote.
