Democratic Gubernatorial Hopefuls Abrams And Evans Face Off Tonight

Oct 2, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” Stacey Abrams and Stacey Evans, the two announced Democratic candidates for governor, go head-to-head in their first forum tonight. What tone will they set? What issues are likely to emerge? We talk with the moderator of the debate, former Georgia secretary of state Cathy Cox. And we ask her about her experiences as a female candidate for governor in 2006.

Then:        

HHS secretary Tom Price’s heady rise to power and precipitous crash all happened in a matter of months. What were the final factors that led to his ouster? And what will the impact of his departure mean for health care here in Georgia and across the country?

Plus:

President Trump’s weekend tweets seem to undermine Secretary of State Tillerson’s efforts to negotiate with North Korea and spark a war with the hurricane-besieged mayor of San Juan Puerto Rico.

Panelists:

Cathy Cox – Mercer University Law School Dean and former Georgia Secretary of State

Jim Galloway – AJC political writer

Brian Robinson – Republican strategist

Lori Geary – Former WSB-TV political reporter
