RS Interview: Jon Golnik (R CAND, MA-03).
MA-03 is a NE Massachusetts district currently represented by Niki Tsongas – and if you’re wondering who that is, don’t worry: nobody else particularly remembers her, either.

With Looting In The Unarmed Big Apple, NYC’s Meddling Mayor Pumps $1.1 Mil To Union-Backed, Anti-Gun Democrat…In Florida!
