Tuesday on Political Rewind, Gov. Brian Kemp joined us at the beginning of our show to discuss the latest updates on the coronavirus in Georgia.

Afterward, the Democratic presidential primary stretches across the country today, as voters in 14 states participate in Super Tuesday.

On the eve of the voting, Joe Biden received a boost from three former opponents. Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg and Beto O’Rourke officially announced their endorsements of Biden Monday night.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has thrown down the gauntlet over a bill that would allow the state to take control of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. 

“I think it’s ridiculous. I think it’s what I call an act of war,” Bottoms said during an interview for GPB’s Lawmakers show which airs  7 p.m. Monday.  “When you live in a glass house, you shouldn’t throw stones.  The state has had its own challenges.”

The four-day week for lawmakers following Monday’s Presidents Day holiday ended with the General Assembly finishing on Day 20, which is the halfway point on the 40-day session. 

The first hurdles of overhauling state’s voting system dominated the week. Lawmakers will continue to wrestle over specifics of the legislation in the coming weeks.
