Brian Kemp speaks to supporters at an election night watch party in Athens.

On this edition of Political Rewind, as the election certification deadline looms both campaigns continue feuding six days after the polls closed. Democrats say they still have a shot at winning the governor’s mansion and the 7th District Congressional seat.

Jim Galloway – Lead Political Writer, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
