The Braintree Day parade is a republican love fest marshaled by the chair of the Republican Town Committee. All the republican candidates for state office were there being cheered on. The Democratic Town Committee had a little marching contingent, but a democrat friend in Braintree who wasn't at the parade says it's a weird choice for a democratic candidate. I wonder how Wu even found out about it. It's not one of the big parades around here that people from other towns go to and which have a lot of visibility. The republican candidates are there because they're friends with the organizer.
