Political Rewind: High Early Voter Turnout, With 75k Newly Registered, As January Runoff Approaches
Friday on Political Rewind: our panel discusses a wide array of topics, from the coronavirus vaccine to the dynamics of the Senate runoff races. Also, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger received widespread acclaim for refusing to bow to pressure to label President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in Georgia a fraud. However, a new report from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution finds Raffensperger’s office might have inflated its investigations in cases of voter fraud for political purposes. Our panel weighs in on how the allegations may play into voter mistrust of the election process. Our panelists included Mary Margaret Oliver, State House Representative (D-Decatur); Brian Robinson, GOP Political Consultant and President of Robinson Republic; Kevin Riley, editor of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution; and Jim Galloway, lead political writer for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
