Episode 49: Victory Lap, Or... Dezexit

46 minutes

We're taking a farewell victory lap this week for Lauren Dezenski's very last episode of The Horse Race before she moves to Washington D.C. to join CNN.

As the third congressional race finally came to its close, we welcomed Chris Lisinski of the Lowell Sun to give us a rundown of the recount madness. Then we looked to our expert ballot guest George Cronin to get caught up on upcoming general ballot questions. John Walsh, Mass Democratic party legend gave us some insiders insight on the new Reason to Believe PAC and what we can expect in the general election.

For a special fourth segment, Steve Koczela further breaks down the Congressional and Governors elections with a recent Suffolk University and Boston Globe poll.

And finally, our something to watch focuses on Lauren's last few years in Massachusetts and what we can expect from her move to the Capitol.
