Podcast: Inside the controversy rocking Georgia’s governor’s race

Catch up on the stories impacting Georgia's race for governor and how politicians on both sides of the aisle are responding. 

The AJC’s James Salzer joined Politically Georgia host Greg Bluestein to discuss the latest on Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, state Sen. Lindsey Tippins, the charter school measure and the secret recording. 

“In one instance, (Cagle is) trying to prevent somebody else from getting money,” Salzer said. “But it’s a little bit different, I think, looked at, at least legally, when somebody says, ‘I’m doing something for campaign contributions or money.’ ”

Bluestein and Salzer provide context, give background and discuss the political fallout. This episode includes an update on the lieutenant governor's race.
