Political Rewind: Georgia Governor’s Race A Litmus Test For 2020

Jul 30, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, as the Georgia governor’s race gets under way in earnest, the clash between the ideologies of Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp becomes one of the most talked about political stories in the country. 

Our panel weighs in on how the contest is being portrayed by the national media.  Then, we know that Brian Kemp’s surge to an overwhelming runoff victory was the largest in Georgia history.  We examine the data.  Plus, Georgia Democrats stake their electoral future on a slate of women candidates.  Will that play to their political advantage in the November election?

Panelists:
AJC Lead Political Writer Jim Galloway
Republican Strategist Heath Garrett
Democratic State Rep. Scott Holcomb (District 81)
Emory University Associate Political Science Professor Andra Gillespie
