The breakdown:

Clark Atlanta University professor of political science Tammy Greer said the expansion of open carry is a right that would be enforced differently for people of color.

2. Is Donald Trump hedging his support for Republican challenger David Perdue in the gubernatorial primary?

  • In a recent interview with media company One America News Network, Trump appeared to back off his support for Perdue in his race against incumbent Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.


3. Herschel Walker, the frontrunner in GOP primary for Senate, faces opposition from conservative fundraising groups. 

  • According to Politico, two Republican PACs are planning to spend millions of dollars for Walker's opponents in the lead-up to the GOP primary on May 24.

    • Walker already has the endorsement of Trump.
