With Important information and cogent analysis, the B:BB paints a detailed picture of the Georgia election field in a mere 15 minutes. Although I live in Florida, I watch Georgia elections because Georgia is a battleground state that’s in the midst of auspicious change. I’m envious. Thank you GPB and Skip Fowler for a great podcast.
