Pope loses her seat in Wayland

WAYLAND

Republican Representative Susan Pope of Wayland narrowly lost her House seat in yesterday's elections to Democrat Thomas Conroy.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Pope had 49 percent of the vote compared to 51 percent for Conroy, the AP reported.

Pope's loss was part of a disappointing day for Massachusetts Republicans as a Democratic surge at the polls drove the GOP to a historic low on Beacon Hill.
