Jan 26, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, the first major battles between candidates for governor break out in both the GOP and Democratic contests.  Brian Kemp accuses Casey Cagle of falling for a liberal conspiracy theory, while supporters of Democrat Stacey Abrams accuse Stacey Evans of using the image of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to advance her campaign.  Plus, Speaker of the House David Ralston weighs in on the idea of giving the state oversight of Hartsfield Jackson International Airport and Medicaid Expansion.
