Republican Bob McDonnell won the race in Virginia and Chris Christie won in New Jersey. Guests: Dan Payne, Democratic Analyst; Eric Fehrnstrom, Republican Analyst.
MBTA Findings A report released this morning on the MBTA found that the agency has left more than 50 critically important safety projects unfunded because of debt.
