There are three branches of government and Republican Dan Winslow has served in all of them.
He was a district court judge. The chief legal counsel to Governor Mitt Romney. And now, he's a state representative from Norfolk.

And these days, he's also running for the U.S. Senate, hoping to fill the seat vacated by Secretary of State John Kerry.
