Kemp Faces Criticism For Gun-Pointing Ad

May 2, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, Governor Deal has only a week left to take action on bills passed during the 2018 legislative session.  Our panel will look at how he may respond to some of the most contentious measures on his desk and at bills that, once signed, will have an impact on Georgians.  Then, GOP gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp is facing harsh criticism for an allegedly humorous ad in which he points a gun at a teenage boy looking to date on of his daughters.  Kemp’s response to the attacks: just spell my name right!  Plus, a new Pew research study shows that Americans have great respect for the ideals the country was found on, but don’t believe we’re living up to those values.
