Episode 59: Moulton Fire of the Vanities

33 minutes

With just a couple of episodes left for the 2018 season, Steve Koczela and Jennifer Smith break down the post-election roll out both locally and nationally. With the vote for Speaker of the House today, Anthony Brooks, political reporter for WBUR, walks us through Congressman Seth Moulton's opposition to Nancy Pelosi and how this reflects on other MA legislators. Then, State Representative from Cambridge, Mike Connolly joins us to discuss a bill he has proposed to bring rank choice voting to Massachusetts. And finally, we take one more look back at the election and how the MA GOP fared and what they might do moving forward with former Horse Race aficionado, Maureen McInerney.
