New candidate in Georgia’s U.S. Senate race; Isakson returns to work

How does Jon Ossoff’s candidacy impact the U.S. Senate race for David Perdue’s seat? In this episode of the Politically Georgia podcast, host Greg Bluestein and AJC Washington correspondent Tamar Hallerman discuss the Jon Ossoff’s decision to run against U.S. Sen. David Perdue, the endorsements he’s already received and how his 2017 special election loss can both hurt and help him. 

The two also discuss why Ossoff decided to challenge Perdue’s seat and not that of U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, and Hallerman also gives a glimpse of Isakson’s first week back at work.
