Former President Donald Trump came to town last week to tout a slate of seven Republican primary candidates that could remake Georgia as we know it.

Almost all of them are seeking to unseat incumbents, and almost all of them are going all-in on false claims about Georgia’s election system and the 2020 results.

Beyond pushing those claims, what else are these campaigns offering voters? With many of them lagging in fundraising and the polls, are their campaigns destined to fizzle out - and what does that mean for 2022 and beyond?

This week: We dig deeper into the Trump slate’s impact on Georgia politics.
