Political Rewind: Candidates Benefit From Outside Campaigners

Oct 10, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, new polls continue to predict that Democrats will make strong gains in the United States House of Representatives and potentially take a majority after the 2018 Midterm Elections. Are Georgia’s Democratic congressional candidates going to follow the national trend or will the state’s voters keep incumbent Republicans in office?


Both candidates for governor received a boost from out of state visitors this week. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren urged metro Atlanta voters to turn out for Stacey Abrams while Donald Trump Jr. stumped for Brian Kemp at the University of Georgia.

Plus, why did candidate for lieutenant governor Sarah Riggs Amico invoke the me-too movement on the campaign trail?
