Photos: U.S. Rep. McGovern pays visit to Hopkinton
Congressman James McGovern stopped by The Spoon on Saturday afternoon as part of a meet-and-greet event that included other Democratic candidates.
McGovern, who has served in Congress since 1997, previously represented Hopkinton when the town was in the 2nd District, but Hopkinton was moved to the 4th District in 2012 and currently is represented by Jake Auchincloss. Hopkinton is set to return to the 2nd District after the latest round of congressional redistricting, and McGovern is up for reelection.
