Political Rewind: Tumultuous Storm Gathers Over Isakson Seat

Dec 2, 2019

Today on Political Rewind, Gov. Brian Kemp is locked in a battle with President Donald Trump over his choice to replace Sen. Johnny Isakson in the U.S. Senate. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Kemp is set to name Atlanta business executive Kelly Loeffler to the seat. Critics claim Loeffler is not a true Trump conservative and want Rep. Doug Collins for the job.

How will this fierce battle play out in the week ahead? Our panel weighs in.

Then, Collins is a key figure in another major story this week. He is primed to be the president’s chief defender as the House Judiciary Committee takes up possible articles of impeachment.
