WHYY Election Special Hosted by Dave Davies


In lieu of our normal Radio Times programming, this hour we are featuring the WHYY/NewsWorks “Election 2014” special hosted by Dave Davies.

WHYY’s “Election 2014” takes you in depth into the major issues in this year’s governor’s race and big congressional races.

We look at the candidates’ proposals on taxes, energy, and education, and at the leadership styles and records of Tom Corbett and Tom Wolf.

We talk with a former campaign operative who trailed former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell for an opposing campaign, and we examine the now common campaign practice of targeted advertising.

We also assess how the next governor is going to be able to get things done with the Pennsylvania legislature.

And we profile what looks to be one of the most competitive congressional races in the region: the contest between Aimee Belgard and Tom MacArthur in New Jersey’s 3rd congressional district.
