For John, BLUF: Nice turnout. Even Sam Poulton was there. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The [Lowell] Sun, by Reporter Rick Sobey, 3 August 2018.
Here is the lede plus two:
The "Blue Wave" is coming this fall, you may have heard time and time again in the wake of Democratic backlash against Republican President Donald Trump.Remember, Primary, Tuesday, 4 September, and the General Election is Tuesday, 6 November. If you are going to be out of the City on 4 September you can vote now. Well, Monday. Tuesday the Election Office (City Hall Basement, SE Corner) is open past 5 PM, for convenience.
But that couldn't have been further from the thoughts of politicos in Lowell's Athenian Corner Wednesday evening.
State and congressional Republican candidates gathered downtown for the "GOP Meet and Rally Fest," making their case for a strong fall election season.
And thanks to State Senate Candidate John MacDonald for organizing the affair.
