Ken Rudin is in New Hampshire, putting his seasoned eye on politics.  And this year, with Republicans hoping to take the U.S. Senate and congressional dysfunction weighing heavily on voters, we’ll explore the themes emerging in the 2014 midterm elections, both here and around the country.


  • Ken Rudin – host of The Political Junkie, a weekly radio show covering national, state, and local politics. He is an expert in U.S. politics and campaign history, and a former NPR political editor.


  • Today's episode of Political Junkie: "NH 2016 — Are We There Yet?": We know like we sound whiney, but we figured if we’re in New Hampshire, there’s no way we can avoid talking 2016 presidential politics.  So we brought two guests into the studio with us at New Hampshire Public Radio:  former state Republican chair Fergus Cullen and Democratic state Senate leader Sylvia Larsen, to talk about their respective parties’ potential candidates for president."
