Tisei to mount a second challenge to Rep. Tierney

WAKEFIELD — Republican Richard R. Tisei, a former state senator who narrowly lost a bid to unseat US Representative John F. Tierney in 2012, said he will officially kick off his second campaign for Congress here Thursday with a hometown rally.

His announcement will mark the start of what is expected to be the state’s most competitive congressional race in 2014. The North Shore-anchored district, which stretches from Bedford to Rockport to Salisbury, is the state’s least Democratic.
