Wednesday on Political Rewind, we discuss the latest on a slate of crucial elections in Georgia as early voting numbers show record turnout. Only two days into the in-person early voting period, more than 10% of the state’s registered voters have already cast their ballots, either in person or absentee.

And yesterday, in Georgia's 6th Congressional District race, Democrat Rep. Lucy McBath and Republican challenger Karen Handel met in a tumultuous debate. Polling is tight between the two just three weeks from Election Day. We also touch on the 7th Congressional District race between Democrat Carolyn Bourdeaux and Republican Rich McCormick for the seat of Republican Rep. Rob Woodall, who decided not to seek re-election.
