Political Rewind: Midterm Election Ballot Initiatives

Oct 22, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, voters will be asked to weigh in on five proposed amendments that will appear on this year’s ballot. We discuss the amendments, decipher what they mean and talk about the significance of each measure.


Brian Kemp is starting his week with a huge boost from both the president and Gov. Nathan Deal. How will Donald Trump’s strong, yet vague, Twitter endorsement help Kemp in the polls?  

Beyond Trump and Deal, national surrogates continue hitting the trail in Georgia in hopes of seeing their candidate in the governor’s mansion next year. Over the weekend Sen. Cory Booker made an appearance on behalf of Stacey Abrams and on Monday Sen. Marco Rubio will be in town to urge voters to vote for Brian Kemp.   

Panelists:

Jim Galloway – Lead Political Writer, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Tamar Hallerman – Washington Reporter, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Heath Garrett – Republican Strategist

Michael C. Owens – Chairman, Cobb County Democrats
