On Dec. 6, the last race of the 2022 campaign will conclude when voting in Georgia ends in the runoff between Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican Herschel Walker.

This campaign has been close since the get-go; it is the first time the major parties have nominated Black men to run against each other in Georgia, and who these two are and where they come from means a lot to the state. Joining us on Political Theater is Clyde McGrady, an enterprise reporter at The New York Times (and former reporter at Roll Call), who has deep connections to Georgia.
