The political game in Georgia is more dynamic than ever. From local elected officials to state and federal government, we're facing complicated issues. On "Political Rewind" we take the time to break down these issues, speaking directly to the decision makers in a respectful and civil manner. We not only get you caught up on what has happened in this fast-changing political world, we look ahead so that you will know what to expect. Tune in on GPB or watch via Facebook Live every Monday through Friday.
Tuesday on Political Rewind: When President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in as the 46th president of the United States tomorrow, he becomes the principal player in a transition marked by a surging pandemic, spiraling joblessness and aggrieved ranks of voters who refuse to believe he was legitimately elected.
But previous American presidents have, too, faced daunting circumstances as they took the oath of office, and yet built brighter futures for the country.
Friday on Political Rewind: After a bruising year of contending with the coronavirus, feuds with the president and a bitter war with fellow Republicans, Gov. Brian Kemp delivered a State of the State speech painting a picture of a brighter future for Georgia.
Also, we paid tribute to a giant of Georgia life: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jim Galloway is retiring after more than four decades at the paper. The longtime panelist will remain a frequent guest of our show.
Thursday on Political Rewind: Georgia’s members of the U.S. House voted along party lines on impeachment of President Donald Trump. The debate continues over the president’s role in inciting insurrection when he directed angry crowds of his supporters to march on the U.S. Capitol last week. Democrats accused trump of violating his oath to protect the country from its enemies, foreign or domestic. Many Republicans called the impeachment a political stunt that will further divide the country.
