'Northborough is Mentioned on TV And Everyone Freaks Out'

Paul Ryan mentioned Mitt Romney's experience with a Northborough family back in the '90s during the debate.

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.

Facebook posts:

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!
