Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan detailed a story about Mitt Romney during the debate Thursday night that put the spotlight on a family from Northborough.
When the mention hit, so lit up Twitter, Facebook and email with people from the area commenting on a reference that was oh so close to home.
Stephanie Lee Butler Went to high school with Reed!
Maureen Forsberg-Burke I never heard of the accident. Surprised it didn't make the news. Not surprised the Romney help was hush hush.
Sarah Whiteman Was very big news when it happened!
David Guarino @davidguarino
@stevekerrigan In fairness, yes, he told that whole story about Northborough family.

Seriously though, I lived in Northborough MA for 23 years. Never heard of the Nixon's or that story. Damn.
