Thursday on Political Rewind, runoff elections are next week as counties plan for further elections this fall.

DeKalb County announced it will send absentee ballot forms to active and inactive voters, drawing criticism from Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Meanwhile, Cobb County rejected a request from election officials for funding to send out absentee ballot requests to voters.

And, WNBA players made a strong statement condemning Sen. Kelly Loeffler for her attacks on Black Lives Matter. But is the conflict between Loeffler and the women's basketball league a problem for the appointed senator’s election plans?
