And as Democrats take control of the United States House of Representatives, there is still no deal in sight to reopen the federal government. How is the shutdown being felt in Georgia and who are being hit the hardest? How will the political stalemate be resolved? 

Plus, the 116th United States Congress boasts a record number of women serving as representatives. How will the increase of female representatives both at the federal and state level impact our politics?
