On this special Election Day preview episode I am joined by the expert political team from Insider NJ -- Max Pizarro, Fred Snowflack, Pete Oneglia, and John Van Vliet -- for a roundtable discussion recorded live at Iberia Tavern and Restaurant in Newark, in which we discuss some of the most fascinating and significant storylines that will dominate the headlines on Election Day. 
 
We begin our conversation with a preview of the race in LD21, as Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick finds himself in perhaps the most difficult reelection campaign of his career. We discuss all of the possibilities of that race, including who might assume the mantel of leadership in the Republican caucus if Leader Bramnick suffers an upset.
 
Discussion then shifts southbound down to LD1 for the special election of Senator Bob Andrzejczak, who, as a Democrat in a moderate district, faces similar partisan fervor from his opponents.
 
We then consider what will be on the docket for the legislature and the governor as soon as we move past election day and into lame-duck. Marijuana legalization continues to be a major talking point, as is the ever-changing dynamic between the Governor and the Senate President. Finally, Max tells us why the Somerset freeholder race may be a dark horse race to watch as early returns come in.
