Welcome to The Women with Rose Reid. Today is Election Day in Georgia!! We continue with our blitz mini-season profiling the amazing women on the ground in Georgia whose work will determine two Senate seats, and party control.

We get two very different perspectives on this blue wave that we see taking Georgia: Barbara Krinsky is a 90 year old self professed "Reagan Republican" making the flip (in part because of candidate Reverend Raphael Warnock's convincing and sincere TV ads). And Park Cannon is the youngest person elected to the Georgia State Legislature from District 58 (representing the historic Old Fourth Ward where Martin Luther King Jr. was born and later preached).

The nation is watching with anticipation as they follow Stacey Abrams' and Fair Fight's footsteps, championing voting rights and registration. And now the world is witnessing the changing landscape of the deep south.
