The new standard-bearer for beleaguered Massachusetts Republicans is a cherubic 26-year-old... Meet Ryan Fattman...
Ryan Fattman, the two-term selectman from the small town of Sutton, won an upset election in the 18th Worcester District, inlcuding Sutton, Uxbridge, Blackstone, Bellingham and Millville.
Down 32 points 6 months out from election day, Fattman campaigned door to door, knocing on 6,700 doors, and winning all towns by a 6 point margine, 53-47%.
Calling his unique last name his secret weapon, Ryan made news across Massachusetts for being "FATTMAN"
Ryan is a graduated of Suffolk Unibersity, and is a thesis away from his Masters at Tufts University. In 2008 he was selected to study at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government for the prestigous Rappaport Public Policy Fellowship.
