Candidate for Massachusetts governor passes stone during debate

Nothing was going to keep Steve Grossman, a Democratic candidate for Massachusetts governor, out of a debate on Tuesday night. Not even a bout of kidney stones.

The Boston Globe reports that during the 90-minute debate, Grossman was in the middle of passing one. Those pained expressions on his face weren’t because of his opponents answers.

His campaign spokesperson, Chandra Allard, says Grossman’s pain level was a 10 on a 10-point scale.

While he made it through the debate, his stone finally bailed during an awards ceremony afterward, to his eventual relief.

And of course, Grossman’s stone already has its own Twitter handle.
