Political Rewind: Mike Pence to Campaign For Kemp

Sep 5, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, Brian Kemp’s campaign will soon get another boost from the Trump Administration when Vice President Mike Pence visits Atlanta next week for a campaign rally. The White House endorsement made a big difference in the Republican primary, but will it have a similar impact for the general election?


To help farmers who are caught in the middle of a retaliatory trade war, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced a new plan that would provide tens of millions of dollars in federal payments. Will the financial assistance be enough to keep rural Georgia in the Trump camp?

U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson joined a chorus of Republican senators in the South who are responding to the president's criticism of Jeff Sessions. Will Trump lose support from his southern base after allegedly calling Sessions a "dumb Southerner?"
