We’re still finding out results from last Tuesday’s elections in Connecticut and that’s not surprising, really. Some of the races were just really close. That’s probably a good thing.
Another good thing: Lots of people showing up to vote. Gigantic numbers showing up to vote in a midterm election in Connecticut and just about everywhere.
The bad thing: We still can’t seem to get this election thing right at least in our cities.
This hour, we look at possible fixes.
One election change being floated by a Republican who dipped her toe in the governor’s race: an open primary to help her party, which got fairly well spanked statewide. It’s a defeat another former gubernatorial candidate said requires a “political enema.” Ouch.
And later, does Amazon’s split decision on an HQ2 tell us anything more about big-money deals to lure or keep jobs?
