Stacey Evans Leads With HOPE In New Attack Ad Against Stacey Abrams

May 4, 2018

Our panelists start by discussing Stacey Evans' new attack ad against her Democratic opponent, Stacey Abrams. The ad makes the case that Abrams "cut a deal" to reduce the HOPE Scholarship.

Next, polls indicate that Casey Cagle has built a comfortable lead in the hunt for the GOP race for governor. Will his campaign now focus on assuring they'll face the opponent they fear least in a possible runoff? And who would they choose? Our panel weighs in. 

Then: Governor Deal signs the most comprehensive transit bill ever crafted in Georgia. How will it affect suburban Atlanta? And what about outlying regions of the state? 

Plus, with primary elections looming in just a little more than two weeks, we'll have the latest news from the campaign trail. 

Panelists:

AJC Lead Political Writer, Jim Galloway

Columbus Mayor, Teresa Tomlinson

Sandy Springs Mayor, Rusty Paul

Republican Strategist, Loretta Lepore
