Republican congressional candidate Chris Sheldon of Plymouth, who will challenge incumbent Bill Keating in the November 6 election, held a whistle-stop tour of the Vineyard Saturday.

A flatbed trailer behind a truck and a piano player replaced the train. Mr. Sheldon made stops in Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, and Vineyard Haven where he spoke and answered questions.
