Elizabeth Childs came second among Republican candidates for the Fourth District with 47 and David Steinhof finished third with 38 votes.

Joseph Kennedy III, , enjoyed similar success to Bielat as he took the Democratic nomination for the Fourth Congressional District, earning 611 votes in Foxborough. Rachel Brown came in second for the Democrats with 59 and Herb Robinson finished third with 16.

In the race for Governor's Council (District 2), Bart Timilty won in Foxborough with 208 votes. Robert Jubinville finished second with 192. Brian Clinton was third with 116 votes and Patrick McCabe finished fourth with 57 votes.

In the Senate race, Senator Brown received 743 votes from his party while his challenger, Elizabeth Warren received 624 votes from her Democrats.

Foxborough Town Clerk Bob Cutler said he wasn't surprised by the low turnout at Ahern Middle School Thursday because primaries typically don't draw many voters.

"It was relatively light but it was expected," Cutler said. "It was in line with the trend of all primaries. ... We projected about 15 percent [turnout] and we got probably right around 14 percent [at 1,471 voters]."
