WFMZ-TV spoke to John Kincaid, Robert B. and Helen S. Meyner Professor of Government and Public Service, for his insight into Shapiro’s proposed economic plan.

“Shapiro is trying to put an optimistic face on the economic situation and saying ‘look, we’re going get through this, and if I’m governor, we’re going to do these great things to improve the economy,'” Kincaid said while acknowledging, “I don’t think the plan directly addresses the concerns of Republican voters in the state who tend to live in the more rural areas.”
