Political Rewind: New Attention On Georgia As Tug-Of-War Over Peach State Voters Begins
Today on Political Rewind, as Democrats set their sights on Georgia’s November presidential debate, new polling reveals a race in flux. In Iowa, nearly 1 in 3 of the state’s Democrats say they have no idea who they will support even as Pete Buttigieg gains ground against front-runners Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren.
But before the Democratic candidates arrive here, Atlanta will get a visit from President Trump. A year before the election, the tug-of-war for Georgia presidential voters is now underway.
First, we talk with Matt Lieberman, the first Democratic candidate to declare he is running for Johnny Isakson’s Senate seat. The son of a former-vice presidential nominee and senator, Lieberman has a sterling political pedigree of his own. Can he overcome the challenge of having little name recognition across the state?
