Trump’s Phone Call And The Georgia Senate Races


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Carolyn Fiddler about Trump's phone call and the Georgia Senate races.

Since the November 3rd election, the state of Georgia has unwittingly become the center of the U.S.’s political universe. Two critically important Senate runoff races on Tuesday could determine which party holds power in the Senate.

And, a traditionally red state that has only recently begun to sway toward Democrats has become a target of intense pressure by the Trump campaign and its allies to engineer a win there for the President.

The recent phone call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger showing the President using the coercive tactics of a mafia mobster has only heightened tensions.

Carolyn Fiddler, one of the nation’s foremost experts on state politics and is communications director at Daily Kos. She writes “This Week in Statehouse Action,” a newsletter that provides updates on state politics to thousands of reporters, political operatives and observers each week.
