A look at Georgia’s upcoming Democratic presidential debate

Host Greg Bluestein is back and this episode of the Politically Georgia podcast digs a little deeper into the upcoming Nov. 20 Democratic presidential debate, which will be held in Georgia, with AJC deputy managing editor Leroy Chapman. Bluestein, who has attended the Democratic debates in Ohio and Texas, and Chapman preview the event and discuss what the debate means for the state ahead of 2020 - from political attention to resources and financial investment. Also, potential opportunities for Democrats, what Georgia can learn from past debates, symbolism of the (currently undisclosed) debate location, and more.
