Today, we get a tri-state political update. Guest host Mary Cummings Jordan starts off in Delaware, discussing the Senate race between three-term Tom Carper and primary challenger Kerri Evelyn Harris. Then we turn to the Garden State and discuss some of the competitive House races and the tougher than expected battle between Senator Robert Menendez and Republican Bob Hugin. And we end the hour on Pennsylvania politics, looking at the governor and Senate races. Our guests are MARK EICHMANN, deputy managing editor of WHYY’s Delaware Desk, NICK CORASANITI reporter for The New York Times, and JOHN MICEK, editor of the editorial and opinion pages for The Patriot-News and PennLive.
