Brian Herr Attends Carolyn Dykema’s Annual BBQ for Seniors

Brian Herr recently attended Carolyn Dykema’s event.  What precisely is the putative Republican nominee for U.S. Senate doing at Democrat State Representative Carolyn Dykema’s event?  Shouldn’t he be attending events on behalf of Republican State Rep Candidate Patricia “Trish” Vanaria (R-8th Middlesex), especially since she’s from Hopkinton as is he?  This is a fair question to ask, and I am…

Gave support to Barack Obama in the 2008 cycle? Check! Recognizes Roe vs. Wade as settled law that shouldn’t be revisited? Check! Supports gay marriage and would overturn the Defense of Marriage Act?
