Week In Review
This Week In News: Election fever swings into full effect this week with two gubernatorial debates and primary elections locally and beyond. The Tea Party scored key victories in several GOP primaries across the country, but could this actually hurt the Republicans' bid to take control of the House and the Senate this fall? A battle is brewing in Congress over whether to let tax cuts expire for the wealthiest Americans, President Jimmy Carter takes the late Senator Edward Kennedy to task over healthcare, and Ben Affleck's new, locally-shot film, The Town, had a star-studded premiere at Fenway Park on Wednesday and opens in theaters today. State Senator Robert Hedlund, Social Critic and Attorney Wendy Kaminer and the Boston Herald's Dave Wedge join us to talk about all this and more as we review the people, places, and things that made news this week.
