Georgia Could Benefit From A Roy Moore Win

Dec 11, 2017

On this edition of Political Rewind, as the Alabama Senate race heads to the finish line, President Trump rallies voters to turn out for Roy Moore, while former President Obama, along with other key African-American leaders, rally in support of Doug Jones. Meanwhile, Alabama business leaders worry the election results could be yet another setback for the state’s efforts to compete with Georgia.

Meanwhile, as Georgia legislative leaders appoint a task force to study sexual harassment guidelines, Casey Cagle faces criticism for not putting a woman on the senate’s list of appointees. Plus, the GOP effort to pass a tax reform bill is having an impact on Georgia’s spending and tax plans.
