Georgians Front and Center Amid Controversies Swirling in Washington

Feb 14, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, three Georgians take center stage in controversies now swirling on Capitol Hill.  FBI Director Chris Wray contradicts the White House story on when administration officials learned that Rob Porter was suspected of abusing his two former wives.  Will Chief of State John Kelly get the boot over concerns about what he knew and when?  Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue faces fire for a proposal to substitute food stamps for government-selected food boxes, but what's really behind the idea?  Also, David Perdue is in the spotlight as he pushes his plan to curtain legal immigration as the Senate begins debate on DACA and border security.  Can his proposal survive partisan gridlock?  Plus, we talk how about Georgia will fare under the president's infrastructure plan with Georgia Congressman Rob Woodall.
