Berkshire District Attorney Paul Caccaviello Launches Write-In Campaign
Berkshire District Attorney Paul Caccaviello has announced he's running as a write-in candidate in the November election.
Caccaviello lost the Democratic primary this month by three percentage points to attorney Andrea Harrington.
Caccaviello said many constituents asked him to get back into the race.
“They, for whatever reason, did not vote,” Cacacviello said. “Whether they were not eligible because it was a Democratic primary; because they are Republicans; didn’t realize that it was voting day because the holiday was there -- just really urging me to please continue the campaign, so they have an opportunity to weigh in.”
As a write-in candidate, Caccaviello said his campaign will work to educate voters about what to write in -- and how to spell his five-syllable last name.
“Listen, I learned how to spell my name when I was eight or ten,” he quipped. “Hopefully, I can convey some of that to the voters electorate. I understand it is a challenge.”
Andrea Harrington could not be reached for comment.
There is no Republican candidate on the ballot.
