It’s all things politics, from the State House to the White House. The Corn State has crowned Mitt Romney the GOP candidate, but he barely wedged in this win. Rick Santorum’s near-victory is not only a boon to his campaign but it’s a win for retail politics. While politicians go full throttle on the road to the White House, voters could face roadblocks as more states pass voter ID legislation. Stateside, Senator Scott Brown is not only positioning himself as the underdog candidate, he’s boasting his bipartisan cred. On the local front, the new year marks a fresh term for our city councilors. From Beantown to the Beltway we’ll talk through it all on our political roundtable.
