Boston popular spot for Presidential nominees on Election night

For the third time in 24 years, a Presidential nominee , will find out in Boston whether they’ll be heading to the White House.

Tonight Republican nominee, Mitt Romney is back in the city, where he’ll watch the election results and await the voters verdict.

It was eight years ago, in 2004, that Senator John Kerry returned to his home in the city after wrapping up his campaign.

But it didn’t turn into a victory party.

What seemed like promising results in his favor early in the evening,  didn’t hold up.  And  George W. Bush defeated Kerry to win a second term.

And in 1988 it didn’t turn into a celebration for  then Governor Michael Dukakis,   the Democrat’s nominee,.  He  also returned to Boston for Election night.   He lost that race for the White House to the elder George Bush.

Tonight, Mitt Romney is hoping to turn that trend around, hoping for a celebration in Boston for a change.
