Political Rewind: Republican Party Faces Internal Struggle Leading Into Senate Runoff Elections
Thursday on Political Rewind: President-elect Joe Biden has maintained his lead over President Donald Trump in Georgia after the state’s ambitious hand recount of some 5 million ballots. But the process did discover counting errors in several counties that added more than 1,000 votes to the Trump column. Meanwhile, even while the president and many loyalists here in Georgia and across the country continue to claim that the election was stolen, many Republicans are beginning to contemplate how their party will regroup in the aftermath of the Trump presidency. We’ll look at the disputed election, how it may impact the senate runoffs and the future of the Republican Party with expert political officials in Georgia. Our panelists included: Rusty Paul, mayor of Sandy Springs and former state Republican Party chairman; Sam Olens, former State Attorney General; Saxby Chambliss, former U.S Senator; and Kevin Riley, editor of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
