Tuesday on Political Rewind: New movement on possible reforms to Georgia's citizen's arrest law. Support from a bipartisan group of lawmakers and Gov. Brian Kemp could mean the swift passage of legislation to change the controversial law.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration pauses Kemp’s plan for a partial expansion of Medicaid. President Donald Trump previously approved Kemp’s plan, which ties expanding Medicaid to a work requirement, but the Biden administration says the requirement is unfeasible during a pandemic. This leaves the opportunity for Georgia's Democratic party to again push for a full expansion of Medicaid in the state.

Former Sen. David Perdue took the first steps to mounting a 2022 challenge to newly elected Sen. Rev. Raphael Warnock. Perdue is expected to decide within the next month whether to formally enter the race.
