Political Rewind: Fort Benning Could House Immigrant Children

Jun 5, 2019

State Sen. Renee Unterman is set to announce she is running for the 7th district seat in congress. She will build her primary campaign around her role in guiding Georgia’s new abortion statute through the Senate. How can we expect the race to play out as a result?

Meanwhile, Georgia democrats say the abortion law will play a central role in their organized effort to take control of the state house.
