Georgia's Senators Respond To Trump's Latest Tariffs

Jun 15, 2018

Today: Georgia's U.S. Senators go their separate ways over President Trump's tariffs. Johnny Isakson wants Congress to approve them while David Perdue says the President has the power to act on his own. We'll look at that split, and at Perdue's apparent unwavering loyalty to the Trump agenda. 


Then, the Democratic runoff in the 6th Congressional District takes a negative turn: Kevin Abel attacks Lucy McBath for accepting what his campaign calls "dark money." It sounds ominous, but there's an ironic twist to the story. 

And there's more headaches for Casey Cagle. The New York Times reports that he bought a condo from a state lobbyist at what appears to have been a bargain price—and sold it for a significant profit. Meanwhile, his political foes are continuing to attack him over the secret episode. What should voters make of these swirling controversies? Our panel weighs in.
