Political Rewind: A Call For Bipartisan Virus Response

Mar 18, 2020

Wednesday on Political Rewind, Gov. Brian Kemp has signed a mid-year budget funding the state through June that includes $100 million earmarked for fighting the coronavirus.

An additional $5 million is to go to support for rural hospitals as they contend with the disease.


And, we will break down a new poll from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution of Democratic voters. The results reveal Biden has increased his lead among Georgians. In the Democratic race to face Sen. David Perdue, Jon Ossoff is in first place, but a plurality of those polled were still undecided.
