TRURO — A little more than a week after withdrawing from the Cape & Islands District state Senate race, Benjamin deRuyter threw his support behind fellow Democrat Julian Cyr.
Cyr, of Truro, who left his job as a policy director at the state Department of Public Health to pursue his campaign, announced the endorsement Tuesday.
“I think Julian and I represent a new generation of leaders here on the Cape, at a particularly important time when we have a rapidly aging population,” deRuyter said. “I’m interested in seeing this seat remain with the Democratic Party. When I look at the field of candidates, I believe Julian is the most well positioned to succeed in the general election."
