The primary races are over, and now there's a new finish line: the November general election. The state's Democratic incumbents have held on to their seats for now. But in the 10th Congressional District there is no incumbent. That means Democrat Bill Keating and Republican Jeff Perry will be slugging it out.

Meanwhile, the three leading gubernatorial candidates spent primary week going head-to-head on radio debates — without Green Rainbow candidate Jill Stein. And former President Jimmy Carter took a surprising shot at the late Senator Ted Kennedy on health care reform. We speak with out news analysts about all of the week's top stories.
