Friday on Political Rewind: In a trial already infused with questions about racism, a defense lawyer added fuel to the fire yesterday with comments about the presence of Black religious leaders in the courtroom.

Meanwhile, Sen. Raphael Warnock says Democrats have to do a better job telling voters how their big-ticket legislative agenda will improve daily lives.

Plus: a look at candidates already on the Georgia ballot in 2022. Will Stacey Abrams decide against running for governor? Will former Sen. David Perdue challenge Gov. Brian Kemp?
