Episode 64: The Horse Race Live - Starting Gate

66 minutes

January 9, 2019: We're LIVE from WeWork at 1 Beacon! While Massachusetts is sending two new members to the US Congress where Democrats control the House, the State Legislature will be gaveling in a new session after a tumultuous year, and Charlie Baker will be starting his second lap around the gubernatorial track. Oh, and the first group of presidential candidates are out of the gate and charging down the backstretch.

Steve Koczela, President of The MassINC Polling Group and Jennifer Smith, News Editor of the Dorchester Reporter, along with special guests set the scene for the year to come in Massachusetts and around the country.

Massachusetts Senate President Karen Spilka walks us through her vision for the State Senate in the new year in terms of policy and restoring stability to the body.

State Rep. Russell Holmes gives his view on what to expect from the Massachusetts House of Representatives.

Lastly, a reporter who knows a whole lot about Elizabeth Warren, the Boston Globe’s Victoria McGrane, brings us up to speed on the state’s senior Senator’s Presidential campaign.

Thank you for joining us!
