Political Rewind: Finding Middle Ground On Polarizing Issues

Aug 29, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, with just over two months until voters decide this year’s election campaigns on both sides of the aisle are busy.


Brian Kemp looks for middle ground on the polarizing issue of a state religious liberty bill while GOP lt. governor candidate Geoff Duncan becomes his party’s attack dog, launching tough attacks on Stacey Abrams and Sarah Riggs Amico.

Plus, big news from two southern states: a federal court rules that North Carolina may have to redraw its congressional district maps before the November election citing unfair gerrymandering by the GOP. And with primary races decided last night, Florida will now have a Governor’s race that mirrors Georgia’s matchup.

Panelists:

Greg Bluestein – AJC Lead Political Writer

Andra Gillespie – Associate Professor of Political Science, Emory University

Sam Olens – Former Attorney General of Georgia

Michael Thurmond – DeKalb County CEO
