Stoneham Selectwoman Challenging Melrose’s Katherine Clark

MELROSE, MA — U.S. Rep. Katherine Clark will have a Republican challenger for her seat in the state’s 5th Congressional District.

Stoneham Selectwoman Caroline Colarusso last week announced her campaign to unseat Clark, one of the highest-ranking Democrats in Congress who Colarusso said “has lost her way.”

“The voters of the 5th Congressional District will have a real choice on November 3rd,” said Colarusso in a post on Patch. “Voters want America to remain a nation of free individuals, equal under the law, with an impartial government, and an economy excluding no one. Americans built America – not government.
