Topic: Lucken’s work on Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign

But he also possessed an unusual attribute to help a candidate seeking to make a name for himself in the state that hosts the first nominating contest.
‘When he decided to run,’ Lucken joked, ‘I think I was the only Republican from Iowa here in Boston.’”
