New Jersey and Pennsylvania: The year ahead in politics and policy

    Listen

    Guests: Kate Zernike, John Baer and John Micek

    What’s ahead for New Jersey in 2015? A lot of it depends if Governor Chris Christie decides to make a bid for the presidency. But can he overcome the controversy surrounding Bridgegate? We’ll talk to New York Times reporter KATE ZERNIKE about Christie and politics in the Garden State. Then, later this month, Democrat Tom Wolf will be sworn in as Governor of Pennsylvania? Will a Republican-controlled legislature help or hinder him as he tackles the challenges that await? JOHN BAER, political columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News, and JOHN MICEK, of The Patriot-News and Penn Live, provide their perspectives on Harrisburg in 2015.
