Georgia State House Rep. Rick Jasperse talks with colleagues during the first day of the year for the 2020 general session of the state legislature.

Thursday on Political Rewind, Gov. Brian Kemp has offered a sharp rebuke to lawmakers who have called a halt to the legislative session to try and resolve an escalating budget fight. Without using his name, Kemp attacked Speaker David Ralston, who called for the seven-day suspension of the session.

LGBTQ advocates say they will fight a bill in the state Senate that would give faith-based institutions legal protection for refusing to adopt children to same-sex couples. Other critics of the measure say it could hold up efforts to ease the rules for adoption of the thousands of Georgian children in foster care.

And, with the New Hampshire primary just days away, some Democrats are increasingly concerned about Joe Biden’s enthusiasm for the race.
