Wednesday on Political Rewind: A new era begins today for the nation and for Georgia.

President-elect Joe Biden is set be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States today. He’s promised to immediately act on climate change, an expanded COVID relief package, a campaign to dramatic increase distribution of vaccines to defeat the virus and other policy.

After the inauguration, Georgia’s new senators-elect Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock will take the oath of office and give Democrats majority-control of Congress for the first time in a decade.
