Political Rewind: 7th District Race Provides Insight Into Democratic Strategy

Jan 8, 2020

Today on Political Rewind, Iran and the stalemate over an impeachment trial dominate national news today. As always, we’ll look at those stories through a Georgia lens.

But first, state news. Two years ago, Democrat Carolyn Bordeaux came within 500 votes of beating GOP incumbent Congressman Rob Woodall in the 7th District race. Why are some top Democratic leaders now switching their allegiance from Bordeaux to a Democrat taking her first shot at the seat?


Plus, soon we will have fundraising totals from most Democrats running for the U.S. Senate. Jon Ossoff’s campaign has already reported his fourth quarter cash haul of more than $1 million. How will his opponents compare?
