Political Rewind: Though Overshadowed, State House Races Remain Party Priority
While congressional and presidential elections are attracting wide attention, one of the most consequential stories of the 2020 election in Georgia is the battle for control of the state House.
Thursday on Political Rewind, our panel looks at the latest from those races.
Democrats are making an aggressive effort to pick up the 16 seats that would give them a majority for the first time in almost two decades, but Republicans are defending their majority fiercely.
