Inside Story

6abc-Philadelphia-11:30 a.m.

Host Matt O’Donnell and the Insiders discuss a brand new year and a changing local (and national) political landscape.  We start with Harrisburg where Governor Wolf battles an increasingly conservative legislature, all while a slew of potential republican candidates looks to challenge his reelection. Moving to New Jersey where there are close to 15 candidates vying for the governor’s office, after Christie’s ups and downs have been legendary. In Delaware, a new governor, a new Wilmington mayor and city council president taking on the homicide rate and a freshman Congresswoman Lisa Blount Rochester makes history as the first woman and African American elected to Congress in the state. This and much more – catch the Inside Story Sunday at 11:30 a.m.
