From Sen. Scott Brown’s surprising upset win in January’s special Senate election to Gov. Deval Patrick’s re-election in November, state politics has come a long way in 2010.

In the past 12 months, the state legislature spun the wheel on casinos, and it rolled right off and out the door. After staunch challenges, Gov. Patrick became governor once again, and the Democrats counted all ten congressional seats in their name. Plus, the storm in the state Probation Department is still howling.

As the year comes to an end, we’ll take a look back at the year in Massachusetts politics with our political team.

Guests:
