Democratic Candidates Abrams And Evans Clash At Forum

Oct 4, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” in the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre, both Democratic candidates for governor say they support action to curb gun abuses. How will that play with conservative Georgia voters?

Then, we look at the first face-off between those candidates, Stacey Abrams and Stacey Evans, which took place at the Carter Center Monday night.

We also discuss hints that Jon Ossoff, the Democratic candidate who lost the special 6th District congressional election to Karen Handel may be preparing to run against her again in 2018. Will Democrats gladly embrace him or look for a new candidate?

And we ask our panel to weigh in on President Trump’s visit to Puerto Rico.
