Friday on Political Rewind: A verdict in a trial from a small town in Georgia gripped the nation. Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael and William "Roddie" Bryan were found guilty of murder charges on Wednesday. However, questions linger about what the case means for racial justice in the United States.
Wednesday on Political Rewind: Education re-emerges as a top issue in state and national politics. In Georgia, Democrats say they feel blindsided by a proposal that would — among other things — reshape school boards across the state.
Tuesday on Political Rewind: Questions about what constitutes legal self-defense and proper use of the citizen's arrest law dominated closing arguments in the trial of the men charged with murder in Ahmaud Arbery's shooting death.
