Apr 23, 2019

On this edition of Political Rewind, as candidates ramp up their campaigns for the 2020 Elections, our panel looks at two trends in fundraising in Georgia that are moving in opposite directions.

 

 


A new study shows Democrats are relying heavily on small gifts from many donors. Meanwhile, Republicans are the likely beneficiaries of a decision by the State Ethics Commission that allows candidates to raise larger sums from big spending contributors.

 

The U.S. Supreme Court has taken up a case that promises to have a profound impact in Georgia and across the country. Can a question about citizenship be added to the 2020 census? We’ll explain why the question is so controversial.
