Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Cliff Albright about how Georgia turned from Red to Blue.
Chaos broke out at the U.S. capitol in Washington DC on Wednesday as thousands of pro-Trump protesters breached the walls of the federal government building where members of Congress were present to certify the results of the 2020 election. Police were unable to stop them from breaking in, as the mostly white men smashed windows and Congress Members and their aides huddled inside. The violence came a day after Georgia’s Senate run off races culminated in wins for the Democratic Party, leading it to gain control of all three chambers of government.
