‘Political Rewind’ replay: On telling a female senator to sit down and be quiet

They couldn’t avoid it. Today’s edition of GPB’s “Political Rewind” began with a mandatory discussion of Senate Rule 19 and the GOP decision to make U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., sit down and be quiet on Tuesday night.

If you missed it live this afternoon, you can listen to it here now:

 

Today’s line-up: Host Bill Nigut; Greg Bluestein, one of your Insiders; Republican consultant Loretta Lepore; the aforementioned Gillespie; and Michael Owens, chairman of the Cobb County Democratic party.
