Political Rewind: Should Georgia GOP Be Worried After Close Congressional Battle in Ohio?

Aug 8, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, a special election for Ohio’s 12th Congressional District was “too close to call” on Tuesday night. Vying for a congressional seat that has been held by a Republican for three decades, Trump-backed Republican Troy Balderson and Democrat Danny O'Connor have put GOP congressional campaigns across the country on alert. 


Meanwhile in Georgia, responding to concerns about hacking voting machines a federal judge has said she’ll look into whether to require the state to use paper ballots. Secretary of State Brian Kemp is defending the use of the machines but says they should be phased out after this year’s election.

We’ll bring you the latest from the gubernatorial campaign trail and other races across the state.
