The house party capped a weekend of local events attended by the Fourth Congressional District candidate.

The race for the Fourth Congressional District seat continued at a Sharon house on Sunday.

Democrat Joseph Kennedy III attended a meet-and-greet at a Kings Road house party.

Residents packed the house to meet Kennedy, who seeks to succeed Barney Frank, who is not seeking re-election in November. The event was not a fundraiser, Chairman Roni Thaler said.
