Why would President Donald Trump attack the validity of an election that he – and Republicans in Georgia and nationwide – won? That's the question on the mind of Republican strategist Brian Robinson. He's a former deputy chief of staff and communications director for Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal.
In a conversation with Denis O'Hayer on "Morning Edition," Robinson talked about the effects the President's claims might have on Georgia's top voting official, Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp.
The discussion also examined why Deal is not intervening in the debate over a measure to legalize casino gambling in Georgia, and the time crunch facing state GOP leaders as they try to save rural hospitals without expanding Medicaid.
Note: Normally, Democratic strategist Tharon Johnson joins Brian for the Political Breakfast feature. He was delayed by jury duty at taping time, so this edition was more of a Continental breakfast, with Brian alone.
