Conversation with Rep. Tsongas

This article is more than 12 years old.

Niki Tsongas is going to Washington. Voters in the 5th Congressional District yesterday delivered a win to the Democrat who could be sworn in as soon as today, and head to congress for a vote tomorrow.

Tsongas will now represent a district once held by her late husband, Paul Tsongas, and she'll serve as the first woman in the Massachusetts delegation since 1983.

Niki Tsongas joins WBUR's Bob Oakes on the phone from Lowell.

This program aired on October 17, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
