Ballot Talks: Local elections preview


    Guests: Will Bunch, Brigid Harrison

    It’s the final edition of Ballot Talks before the midterm elections. A new poll from Franklin and Marshall College shows incumbent Tom Corbett gaining some ground, but a victory against Democratic challenger, Tom Wolf is still considered a long-shot. The House race for New Jersey’s vacant 3rd District seat isn’t as close as Democrats would have hoped, where Republican Tom MacArthur holds a ten point lead according to the latest polls. This hour, we’re joined by WILL BUNCH, who authors the Attytood blog for the Philadelphia Daily News, as well as BRIGID HARRISON, professor of political science at Montclair State University, with one last look at these races and other regional elections before voters head to the polls on Tuesday.
