Political Rewind: 4 Go For Perdue's Seat, But No One For Isakson's Yet

Sep 11, 2019

On this edition of Political Rewind, our panelists discuss the increasingly competitive Democratic race in Georgia for U.S. Senate. So far, the four Democrats who have officially launched their campaigns are aiming for Sen. David Perdue’s seat. When will Democrats begin lining up for a shot at the seat that Sen. Johnny Isakson is giving up? Why has no African American candidate come forward to run?


Also, Gov. Brian Kemp announces an initiative to boost rural Georgia’s economy. We will look at his plans.

On Capitol Hill, Congress is back in session this week and gun control is high on their agenda. But, Georgia’s delegation is deeply split on what measures, if any, they are willing to support.

Panelists:

Greg Bluestein -- Lead Political Reporter, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Heath Garrett -- Republican Strategist

Lori Geary -- Host, Georgia Gang

Howard Franklin -- Democratic Strategist
