Political Rewind: Sexism And Bigotry In Today's Politics

Feb 4, 2019

On this edition of Political Rewind, Republican and Democratic women in the state legislature have declared a temporary truce to speak out about how they’ve been marginalized by male leaders. State Senator Jen Jordan joins us to talk about the issues driving their concerns.


 

Both President Trump and Stacey Abrams are preparing to take the stage on Tuesday for the State of The Union address and the Democratic response. Our panel weighs in on what they might say and how each can make the greatest impact.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has become the most recent example of how the bitterness of bigotry continues to roil the political scene even today. How are Northam’s colleagues responding to his refusal to resign?

 

Panelists:

 

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

 

Heath Garrett -- Republican Strategist

 

Jen Jordan -- State Senator (D-6)
