 Tuesday was on off-year election with a few interesting races taking place in our region. We’ll begin by looking at the election of Democrat Phil Murphy, who won the New Jersey governorship over Chris Christie acolyte Kim Guagdano by a larger margin than expected. Montclair State University professor of political science BRIGID HARRISON joins us to talk about what the election will mean for New Jersey. Then, we’ll talk with WHYY’s DAVE DAVIES about the winner of the race for District Attorney of Philadelphia, Democrat Larry Krasner. And we’ll talk about what the ‘yes’ vote of the ballot question will mean for Pennsylvanian’s property taxes. We close out the hour looking at the election results in Virginia, and if the Democratic victories down there are a referendum on President Trump. Also the Democratic National Committee is infighting following former chairwoman Donna Brazile’s claims that the Clinton campaign had an unfair advantage in the 2016 primary. DAVID WEIGEL of The Washington Post joins us.
