Feeley-Knuuttila endorses O'Neill-Laperriere, shuns fellow Democrat

Democratic Party unity is dead along the Mohawk Trail, as yet another fallen Democrat has declined to endorse the winner of a state house primary.

Colleen O'Neil-Laperriere (U-Gardner) announced on her website this afternoon that she had received the endorsement of Democratic runner-up Amy Feeley-Knuuttila (D-Winchendon) in her quest to win the representative's seat in the Second Worcester District.

Feeley-Knuuttila lost Tuesday's primary to Pat Gerry (D-Gardner) by a nearly two-to-one margin, despite winning three of the five towns in the district. Gerry won Gardner overwhelmingly on his way to the nomination.

Earlier today, Lee Chauvette (D-Athol) in the neighboring Second Franklin District announced that he would not be supporting nominee Denise Andrews (D-Orange).
