Also, a bipartisan victory lap in Hartford as lawmakers celebrate the largest income tax cut in state history that takes effect at the beginning of January. House Minority Leader Vin Candelora joins the show.
And new developments in the Bridgeport ballot box scandal. The State Elections Enforcement Commission has launched two new investigations.

It says a video shows Gomes' supporters also stuffed absentee ballot boxes.
The primary election redo is slated for Jan. 23.
