Today’s ‘Political Rewind’: John Lewis assumes leadership of the anti-Trump opposition

Today’s edition of GPB’s “Political Rewind” started with the news that U.S. Rep. John Lewis would boycott next Friday’s inauguration of Donald Trump, saying he didn’t think of the president-elect as “legitimate.”

And it picked up from there. You can listen to it here:

Today’s line-up: Host Bill Nigut; yours truly, the AJC political columnist; Greg Bluestein, fellow AJC Insider; and Maggie Lee, a free-lance journalist currently attached to the Macon Telegraph.

“Political Rewind” airs at 2 p.m. Monday and Wednesday, and at 3 p.m. Friday, on GPB Radio – locally at WRAS (88.5 FM).
