Political Rewind: State Democrats Plan For Trump Visit And November Presidential Debate

Nov 8, 2019

Today on Political Rewind, Democratic Party of Georgia Chair, state Sen. Nikema Williams, joins our panel to discuss how Democrats plan to use Atlanta’s presidential debate in their efforts to turn the Peach State purple.

There is one possible late entry into the Democrat’s nomination race who will not be on the stage in Atlanta. Former New York City Mayor and businessman Michael Bloomberg’s reported interest in the Democratic presidential ticket has already stirred up excitement and consternation. We will ask our panel how they think Bloomberg’s candidacy could shake up the race.

President Donald Trump is in Atlanta. After a high-dollar fundraiser, he will launch efforts to draw black voters into his camp. What chance do Black Voices for Trump have to make a dent in historic black support for Democrats? Our panel weighs in.
