Podcast: The Political Pros

Comments Off

While we political reporters like to think we live and breathe the goings-on under the state Capitol dome and on the campaign trail, we've got nothing on political consultants and strategists.

And so this pre-Christmas edition of the Capital Notes Podcast features two of the state's most interesting -- and lively -- politicos: Democratic strategist Jason Kinney and Republican strategist Julie Soderlund.

We take a look back at the year in review -- from the governor's tax negotiations to battles over pensions and more. We also check in on the battles brewing for the big 2012 election season.

Next week, it's the journalists' turn at the greatest hits of 2011.
