Congressman James McGovern Talks About Massachusetts New 2nd District

Massachusetts Congressman James Mcgovern from Worcester won the democratic primary in the newly configured 2nd district, which now includes parts of western Massachusetts. In the primary last week, Mcgovern beat challenger William Feegbeh.  Now, Mcgovern is a virtual “lock” to win the seat, as there is no republican on the November 6th ballot. Mcgovern is a life-long politician who began his career working for Senator George Mcgovern — no relation — and the late Boston Congressman, Joe Moakley. Mcgovern says in the early days — when he was cutting his political teeth, he worked on a wide range of issues.
