Likely the biggest question to end 2019 is: Who will Gov. Brian Kemp appoint to fill U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson’s seat following his retirement?
Last week, Kemp encouraged anyone interested in the job to apply online. Within hours, more than 150 people submitted their resumes. In this episode of the Politically Georgia podcast, host Greg Bluestein and AJC Washington correspondent Tamar Hallerman discuss the serious applicants who have applied for the position as well as potential Democratic contenders.
Bluestein and Hallerman also talk about how the public applications took other potential seat contenders out of the race and why Kemp chose to put the senate applications online.
