The panel:

Chauncey Alcorn — Political reporter, Capital B

Riley Bunch — Public policy reporter, Georgia Public Broadcasting

Stephen Fowler — Political reporter,Georgia Public Broadcasting

Tamar Hallerman — Senior reporter, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution 


The breakdown:

1. New details on Republican electors in the 2020 election.


2. Takeaways from runoff debates.


3. Brian Kemp's school safety plan is notably silent on guns.

  • The governor spoke at an assembly of school resource officers and educators Monday, where he held a moment of silence for the victims of the Uvalde shooting and pointed to additional funding for mental health resources in schools. 
  • However, Kemp did not mention guns or changes to state policy.
    • The AJC's Tamar Hallerman said the governor's rhetoric was, "in line with what we've seen from other Republicans."


4. Black candidates of both parties seek a growing Black electorate.

  • Capital B's Chauncey Alcorn noted that Black Georgians make up 32% of the state's population and 29% of its voters. However, only two Black candidates have won statewide elections.

Capital B's Chauncey Alcorn on Black candidates

  • As GPB's Stephen Fowler noted, more Black Republicans are running for state office.

    • Fowler also notes that regardless of the election's outcome, Georgia will have a Black senator.
  • According to a Capital B article, only 10% of Black voters say they'd vote for a Republican U.S. senator. This might prove troublesome for Herschel Walker's campaign.
