Gov. Deal Vetoes Campus Carry And Trump Emerges As De Facto GOP Nominee

May 4, 2016

Tuesday was Governor Deal’s final day to act on legislation. The headline, of course, was his decision to veto the controversial “campus carry” bill. What factors led to his veto? What will pro-gun forces do next? How will the governor’s action affect his ability to work with legislators next session?

Following Donald Trump’s victory in the Indiana primary, GOP leaders are now calling him the presumptive presidential nominee. Ted Cruz has dropped out of the race. How did Trump win? What will a convention managed by the Trump team will look like and how has his apparent victory irrevocably changed conventional campaign strategies?

And we close with voices from Georgia voters. Producer Jenny Ament visited Atlanta’s iconic diner the Silver Skillet this week to speak with people about their thoughts and concerns regarding the presidential campaign, campus carry and more.
