This week, the bids in response to Amazon's RFP were due. We look at those submitted from Massachusetts cities and towns and what they're doing to try to lure the tech giant and its promised 50,000 jobs.

We also look at how the Boston mayoral race is shaping up, with just three weeks to go until election day. And we discuss the state's health care reform bill that supporters say will save the Commonwealth between $475-$525 million by 2020.
