Attleboro, MA- Retired Air Force Colonel Julie Hall, an Attleboro Republican, officially suspended her campaign for the 4th Congressional District today, citing family and health reasons.
“After much reflection, and due primarily to health and family considerations, I have decided to suspend my run for office at this time,” said Hall.
Colonel Hall is a 30-year veteran of the United States Air Force, having risen from an enlisted recruit to Colonel during her tenure in the armed services. As a decorated officer, she is a recipient of the Legion of Merit, Defense Meritorious Service Medal, and the Air Force Commendation Medal. She was also awarded the Pentagon Badge, the Headquarter Air Force Badge, and twice served as a Squadron Commander.
“I am a warrior and fighter, but family and health come first, and after reevaluating the enormous commitment required to run a successful campaign for Congress I have determined that now is not the right time for my candidacy,” said Colonel Hall.
Colonel Hall was running against first term Congressman Jake Auchincloss in a rematch of the 2020 election. In an election year seen as a referendum on President Trump, Colonel Hall still garnered nearly 39% of the vote in a traditionally Democrat leaning district.
