This week, former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick said he’s not be running for President in 2020. Former Secretary of State and former Mass. Senator John Kerry said he’s not “actively pursuing” the thought either. Senator Elizabeth Warren is the only Mass. politician actively considering a run.

Our Week In Review panelists break down the 2020 presidential field and discuss who, from New England, stands a chance against Trump.

Plus, Gov. Charlie Baker called for a Newton Judge to be removed from the bench this week after reports that she was the subject of a federal investigation.

The investigation centers on whether District Court Judge Shelley M. Joseph helped an undocumented immigrant leave her courtroom to avoid being detained by an ICE agent present at the courthouse. Critics say Gov. Baker is out of line and immigration officials shouldn’t be targeting courthouses.
