‘Political Rewind’ replay: Donald Trump endorses Roy Moore

Today’s edition of GPB’s “Political Rewind” starts with President Donald Trump’s Air Force One endorsement of Roy Moore, the embattled Republican in the U.S. Senate race in Alabama.

“Go get ‘em, Roy,” Trump told the candidate. The consensus: It could work. Which is not necessarily what Republicans already in the Senate want.

And then there is tomorrow’s runoff for mayor of Atlanta: Over the weekend, Keisha Lance Bottoms brought in U.S. Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kamala Harris of California. Mary Norwood leaned on former Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin and Cathy Woolard, who placed third in the Nov. 7 contest.
