‘Political Rewind’ replay: Shirley Franklin on the ATL race for mayor

With former mayor Shirley Franklin in the house, today’s edition of GPB’s “Political Rewind” couldn’t help but start out with a look at the Atlanta mayor’s race between Keisha Lance Bottoms and Mary Norwood.

Franklin repeated her contention that trust was a basic issue in the campaign – pointing to the federal investigators currently digging their way through City Hall. A little bit of news: Franklin said she had been in touch with DuBose Porter, chairman of the Democratic Party of Georgia – to ask him about the party’s TV attack on Norwood.
