Delaware Valley Election Day primer

Listen 49:00

Guests: Dave Davies, Holly Otterbein, Joe Hernandez

Tuesday is Election Day, so we’re going to give our listeners a primer on what to think about before voting next week in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. We’ll talk about the hotly contested congressional races in the two states that will play a big role in determining the makeup of the US House next year. We’ll also look at how Pennsylvania’s newly redistricted congressional map has altered this election cycle. The Democrats are trying to hold on to seats in the Senate in Pennsylvania and New Jersey as well while Pa. Governor Tom Wolf is running for reelection against a Trumpian Republican challenger. We’ll also dissect  money being spent on the campaigns, and how President Trump’s shadow looms large over all the races.  Our guests are WHYY’s DAVE DAVIES and JOE HERNANDEZ, and The Philadelphia Inquirer’s HOLLY OTTERBEIN.
