Political Rewind Special Edition: Election Day In Georgia

May 22, 2018

On this Special Edition of Political Rewind, it’s Election Day in Georgia as voters go to the polls to make their choices in dozens of races.  Democrats will pick their nominee for governor and no matter who wins, it will be the first time ever in Georgia that a woman will lead a party’s ticket into the Fall.  Republicans may send their governor’s race to a mid-summer runoff, which means they’ll endure nine more weeks of campaigning before they can turn their attention to the winning in November.  Also, two potentially vulnerable GOP incumbent members of Congress will be eyeing the results of Democratic primaries in their districts, the Georgia 6th and 7th, but those races are likely to go to runoffs, too.
