Media Roundtable: Georgia's Senate Runoff, The COVID Vaccine & California's Shutdowns

Dec 11, 2020

On this edition of Your Call’s Media roundtable, we are discussing Georgia’s Senate runoff. Nearly one million voters have already requested mail-in ballots. According to a ProPublica investigation, Republican Senator David Perdue sold his home in Washington DC to a finance industry official whose organization was lobbying the Senate Banking Committee, which Perdue sits on.

Later in the show, we are talking about how the COVID vaccine will be distributed in huge states like California, which could receive the first batch as early as Tuesday.
