Republican candidate for Georgia's 6th District Congressional seat Karen Handel declares victory during an election-night watch party Tuesday, June 20, 2017, in Atlanta.

On this edition of Political Rewind, 6th District Congresswoman Karen Handel is tapped to help other GOP candidates for congress on how to run for office in the anti-Trump atmosphere, but the AJC’s Jim Galloway says Governor Nathan Deal may be the best model for Republicans on how to win. 

Then, Atlanta is a finalist for Amazon’s new headquarters, but what will be the political pushback to a massive tax break, and what would it all mean to Atlanta’s already troubled affordable housing market?  Plus, why the Georgia Senate would pass an adoption bill with language that Governor Deal has said he opposes.
