Governor Charlie Baker announced this week he won't seek a third term, breaking open the Governor's race for the first time in nearly a decade. Meanwhile, the Senate narrowly voted to move forward the nomination of Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins for U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts. All of this as hospital and ICU beds fill up as cases climb in the Commonwealth, and the omicron variant spreads. We'll talk everything from politics to COVID with Michael Curry, president & CEO of the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers, past president of the Boston branch of the NAACP, and current board member of the national NAACP, and Jennifer Nassour, former chair of the Massachusetts Republican Party, and founder and president of the PocketbookProject, which supports center-right women for elected office.

This program aired on December 3, 2021.
