|Description||"Two years ago, Alice Hanlon Peisch raised eyebrows on the local level: She bucked the odds by capturing a House district that had always been represented by a Republican male. |
This year, she's trying to repeat the feat. And against the same opponent, George P. Field.
Several local observers say that if Peisch wins again, it would confirm that Wellesley and Weston -- long an enclave of conservative politics surrounded by Democratic strongholds -- are becoming more liberal."
