Episode 47: The Horse Race LIVE -- Full Court Pressley

82 minutes

The Horse Race goes LIVE in this special post-primary "winner's circle." We recorded in front of a live studio audience at WeWork Boston's One Beacon office. President of the MassInc Polling Group, Steve Koczela and Politico Massachusetts' Lauren Dezenski break down all things Massachusetts primaries.

On this extended episode, we welcomed Meghna Chakrabarti Host of NPR's "On Point" to discuss MA elections up and down the ticket. We then welcomed Gus Bickford Chair of Mass Dems to talk strategy as we move from primary, to general, and national elections. And finally we have Alex Goldstein, an advisor to Ayanna Pressley campaign tell us all about what it was like to be in the Pressley campaign room on election night. And finally, we closed out the evening with questions from you, our listeners.

Many thanks to the WeWork One Beacon Team as well as all MassInc staff for their support at this event.
