Our panel weighs in on the week's top stories:

Meningitis Outbreak Investigation

The storm of controversy surrounding the New England Compounding Center carries on as new evidence this week suggests that the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Pharmacy may have been too lenient on the Framingham pharmacy.

Congressional  Endorsements

Both The Boston Globe and the Boston Herald have endorsed Republican Richard Tisei for the 6th Congressional District.

Presidential Debate

Borchers helped provide us with a Massachusetts-focused analysis of Monday night's foreign policy debate between President Obama and Gov. Romney. Our panelists analyze the references to Romney's  Mass. governorship and whether they have worked to his advantage or not.

Senate Race

new WBUR/MassInc poll shows Warren leading Brown by five points. Earlier this week, both candidates reached out to communities that have stereotypically leaned in their opponent’s favor. For example, Warren turned attention to veterans' affairs, and Brown has set up three offices in predominantly African-American communities staffed with people wearing “Obama supporters for Brown” shirts.
