Handel And Ossoff Clash In First Debate

Jun 7, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” the 6th District contenders face off in their first debate ahead of the June 20 election. Who scored the most points? Our panelists pick apart the candidates’ performances and handicap the race as of today.

Also today, the heat is on in Washington as Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and the head of the National Security Agency, Adm. Mike Rogers, testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Tempers flared as Coats kept his cards close to his vest. What does this mean for tomorrow's marquee event: the James Comey testimony? And on the topic of Comey, breaking news as we go on the air: the Washington Post has obtained a copy of the statement Comey will make tomorrow. The document indicates Trump demanded loyalty from his FBI chief. It’s another "bombshell" moment in this evolving story.

Panelists:

Greg Bluestein – Political Writer, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Buddy Darden – Fmr. Georgia Congressman

Eric Tanenblatt – Republican Consultant

Melita Easters – Democratic Consultant
