Testing candidates’s knowledge, Jeopardy-style, at Democratic forum

EASTON — During last night’s forum at Stonehill College between Democratic Senate hopefuls, there was a mock “Jeopardy round” where the candidates were quizzed on their knowledge of the Commonwealth.

Wayland state Representative Tom Conroy impressed the crowd by being able to identify the location of the town of Florida.

But Elizabeth Warren won a big one as three candidates whiffed on the highest point in Massachusetts. Warren correctly identified Mount Greylock.

Conroy scored a victory over Warren when he identified Lowell as the fourth largest city in the state, which she and others got wrong.

Only Jim King, however, knew that the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004 and 2007. All four other candidates guessed wrongly, drawing jeers and sighs from the crowd of about 300.
