Political Rewind: As 2020 Winds Down, Looming Runoffs And Battle Over COVID-19 Relief Heat Up

The Political Rewind team is back as we take a look at the top stories of the day. It’s the last week of early in-person voting for the Jan. 5 runoff election. Candidates in the Senate runoff elections are moving into the closing days of their campaigns even as more than 2 million Georgians have already cast ballots early mail or in-person early. Fundraising in the election continues to soar to new heights as campaigns approach a staggering half-billion dollars in spending before the last ballot is cast. Also, the debate over relief for American citizens struggling through the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Last night, a recalcitrant President Donald Trump signed a massive coronavirus relief package he had threatened to veto. What does this latest move mean to Georgia's pair of Republican U.S. senators?
