This Week on Basic Black: The race for Massachusetts' next governor

October 17, 2014

Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker are in a dead heat in the governor's race.  The margin of error in the polls for both candidates is slim, but can voters in communities of color fill the margin with a victory, sending one of them to the governor's office.  This week on Basic Black, we look at how the candidates for governor are delivering their message to communities of color in a race to the finish line on November 4.
