Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Georgia) prepares his farewell speech to the U.S. Senate

Georgia’s Senior Senator Johnny Isakson (R-Georgia) delivered his farewell speech Tuesday from the floor of the U.S. Senate. Isakson is stepping down at the end of the year due to health issues.

Rickey Bevington, host of GPB’s All Things Considered, reports on the message Senator Johnny Isakson gave in his farewell address on Dec. 3, 2019.

Isakson wasted no time getting to the point of his speech.

“There’s something missing in this place,” Isakson told his colleagues.

What’s missing, he said, is bipartisanship.
