Political Rewind: NRA Leadership With Local Ties

May 1, 2019

On this edition of Political Rewind, Georgia Democrats ponder their next steps in the effort to unseat David Perdue now that Stacey Abrams announces she won’t make the race.


Former Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson becomes the first Democrat to officially declare her formal candidacy. Who else may join the Democratic contest?

 

Carolyn Meadows, a long-time power in Georgia Republican politics, has been elected president of the National Rifle Association. Meadows says that she’ll make unseating her own representative in Congress, Lucy McBath, a top priority for 2020.

 

Plus, Attorney General Chris Carr announces he’ll begin an investigation of sexual abuse claims in the Catholic Church in Georgia.
