Episode 43: Family Feud

31 minutes

8/8/18 -- Democrats are taking on Democrats in this week’s episode of The Horse Race. First, Andy Metzger of State House News Service (and who is soon to be striking out as a freelancer!) details some tension between senate president Karen Spilka and speaker of the House Bob DeLeo in the wrap up of legislative loose ends. Then the Dorchester Reporter’s Jennifer Smith returns to breakdown this week’s debate between incumbent congressman Mike Capuano and his primary challenger Ayanna Pressley.

Plus, State House News Service reporter Matt Murphy checks back in on the race for secretary of state, and whether or not challenger Josh Zakim has sustained any momentum against incumbent Bill Galvin.

This week’s episode is sponsored by WeWork Boston.
