Episode 91: Primary Sources

34 minutes

7/24/19--It's Mueller Day! Does that phrase sound familiar? Probably because it's been thrown around once or twice in The Horse Race bunker already. Steve and Jenn pontificate on today's testimony, and discuss Massachusetts elected officials' positions on impeachment.

Next, Steve and Jenn welcome back a familiar face. Stephanie Murray, author of the Politico Massachusetts Playbook, brings the hosts up to speed on the most recently announced primary challengers to U.S. Congressmen from Massachusetts. Business executive, author, and inspirational speaker Steve Pemberton announced his run for Senate, joining Shannon Liss-Riordan as a challenger to sitting Senator Ed Markey. And Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse is running against Congressman Richard Neal.

Lizzi Weyent of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council stops by to join Steve in celebration of the Massachusetts state budget. They talk decisions on transportation and education funding and Lizzi explains what she'd like to see change in future budgets.
