At the state Capitol in Atlanta, and in the nation’s capital, it was a busy week, to say the least.
U.S. House Republicans unveiled their plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act; Georgia Republican Gov. Nathan Deal said he might look at a revised version of the “campus carry” bill he vetoed last year; and a stampede of candidates from both parties charged into the final weeks of campaigning for the 6th District U.S. House seat.
On “Morning Edition,” Denis O’Hayer sorted through it all with political strategists Brian Robinson and Tharon Johnson.
Robinson is a Republican who served as deputy chief of staff and communications director for Deal; Johnson is a Democrat who was the national Southern regional director for the Obama 2012 campaign.
(Note: The expanded version includes a detailed look at the governor’s revised education reform plan, which has sparked another big debate under the Gold Dome.)
