Georgia’s Isakson Plays Key Role In Fate Of Trump’s VA Secretary Nominee

Apr 25, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, President Trump sends mixed signals about his support for  his embattled nominee to head the Veterans’ Administration.  Now, Georgia’s Johnny Isakson holds a key to the fate of Dr. Ronny Jackson.  We’ll look at the controversy.  Then, former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed faces new scrutiny for his spending habits in City Hall.  Was it legal for the mayor to give out half a million dollars in bonuses to loyal staffers as he prepared to leave office?  And in news from the campaign trail, Casey Cagle and his wife appear to have different ideas as to how the primary campaign will play out, while the Democratic candidates for governor spar over gun control and HOPE in their first televised debate.
