For John, BLUF: You have to have a ticket to win. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Over at The [Lowell] Sun is an article on Ms Ann Woffard, who is the Republican challenger to US Rep Niki Tsongas. Nice front page article, below the fold. Reporter is Grant Welker.
Incidentally, Ms Woffard will be on Local Access City Life on Tuesday at 0600. You can see the show on your computer if you don't have Lowell COMCAST Cable Access to LTC.
She does have a campaign web site.
