Political Rewind: Senate Hopeful Jon Ossoff Speaks About Campaign

Oct 2, 2019

On this edition of Political Rewind, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Jon Ossoff joins us live in studio as the latest guest in our series of conversations with David Perdue’s challengers. Will he be able to capitalize on the energy and campaign funds that animated his race for Congress two years ago or will the loss of the most expensive race in congressional history hold him back?

An Atlanta federal judge halts the implementation of HB-481, the law that criminalizes abortions past six weeks in Georgia. It was set to take effect at the start of 2020, but now faces a long series of legal actions that could bring it before the U.S. Supreme Court. 

Plus, an outspoken critic of Speaker David Ralston wins a seat in the Georgia House. Is this bad news for Ralston and the GOP establishment?

Panelists:

Teri Anulewicz – State House Representative (D-Smyrna)

Greg Bluestein – Political Reporter, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Heath Garrett – Republican Strategist

Jon Ossoff – Democratic Candidate for U.S. Senate
