(NECN: Mike Cronin) - A Northboro family played a role in Thursday night's vice presidential debate.
Candidate Paul Ryan spoke about how Mitt Romney helped Mark and Sheryl Nixon after a family tragedy.
In 1995, a car accident left two of the Nixons' sons, Reed and Rob, paralyzed. Romney reached out and visited the family that Christmas.
Worcester News Tonight's Mike Cronin spoke with the Nixons about their family and the debate.
