On this edition of Political Rewind, a surprise at the State Capitol: a hate-crimes bill is suddenly re-introduced. Can it pass the legislature and become law? Also, qualifying for the 2018 Georgia elections ends and candidates across the ballot are now in place. Our panel weighs in on the surprise, the trends and the races likely to be in the spotlight. In news from the state legislature, a measure to fund voting machines that leave a paper trail moves forward while progress to expand the legal rights of victims of childhood sexual abuse may not. And, it’s been quite a news day involving President Trump.
