If you have been looking for a right-wing condiment to top your Freedom Fries, look no more. The nation's first Republican ketchup has arrived - and it has been co-created by Lodi native, Stacey Hughes.
Hughes, the daughter of former Lodi mayor Richard L. Hughes and Sharon Hughes, wasn't a big political activist growing up, but she was smart and eager. She graduated from Lodi High School in three years and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo also in three years, with a degree in business and finance. She later earned her master's of business administration degree from Harvard Business School - the same place President George Bush got his MBA.
