Weight Lifted Off Isakson’s Back

Apr 27, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, a weight is lifted from Johnny Isakson’s back: President Trump’s embattled personal doctor, Ronny Jackson, withdraws his name from consideration of VA Secretary.  Isakson was unhappy with Trump’s choice from the very beginning.  Then, Republican State House incumbent Betty Price draws a well-known challenger in her primary race.  Have her many controversial statements made her vulnerable?  Plus, a middle Georgia school district becomes the first in the state to authorize some of its teachers to carry guns in the classroom.  Will more districts follow?
