Episode 86: The Horse Race LIVE at the Races Part 1: Shannon Fire 💥

24 minutes

6/12/2019--Steve and Jenn are back in the studio, fresh from a weekend at the race track...literally. Sunday, June 9 was full of big hats, exciting races, and scintillating political conversation during our live show at Suffolk Downs.

The first guest to speak was Shannon Liss-Riordan, a labor attorney and Senate candidate who's announced her bid for Senator Ed Markey's seat. She joined Jenn and Steve at the track to talk about why she's running for this position now, and how her focus will differ from that of Markey.

Speaking of the Senate, Steve and Jenn discuss the latest Boston Globe/Suffolk University Poll surveying Massachusetts voters, specifically Markey's numbers, that depict a lukewarm response from those surveyed. His name recognition is relatively low, but he still has a significant leg up on challengers Liss-Riordan and Steve Pemberton.
