September 20 – Massachusetts House 12th Bristol District

RESULTS – Republican Keiko Orrall has defeated Democrat Roger Brunelle Jr. 2,125 to 1,761.

The district encompasses parts of East Freetown, Lakeville, Middleborough, East Taunton, and New Bedford and is part, as the picture suggests, of the cranberry bog region of the state.
