Ballot Talks: Midterms elsewhere


    Guests: Mary Spicuzza, Dave Helling, Andra Gillespie

    In this edition of Ballot Talks, our weekly hour on all things election-related: We take a look at some of the more interesting midterm elections taking place across the country. First, we’ll hear from MARY SPICUZZA, state government reporter for the Wisconsin State Journal, about the tightly-contested race for governor between incumbent Scott Walker and his Democratic challenger, Mary Burke. Then, we’ll hear about a race which has received a lot of national attention – the governor’s race in Kansas. DAVE HELLING from the Kansas City Star joins us to let us in on the latest between incumbent, Sam Brownback and democrat Paul Davis. And lastly, ANDRA GILLESPIE, assistant professor of political science at Emory University, describes the messy senate race in Georgia.
