Tuesday on “Closer Look with Rose Scott”:

  • 6:01: The election isn’t over for a number of contests, which are headed to a December run-off election — including the race for Georgia’s next Secretary of State, which is between Republican Brad Raffensperger and Democrat John Barrow. Both join us in studio for the first live debate of the runoff election.

  • 41:22: This Thanksgiving holiday is expected to have a record number of travelers going through airports around the country including here in Atlanta at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. But what if your mode of holiday transportation wasn’t a plane but on a 24-foot boat instead? And you were traveling across the Atlantic Ocean. That’s the mission of Atlanta-based veteran Tim Crockett. He stops by to explain why he hopes his journey will raise awareness, and funds, for other veterans.
