Six months after appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson returns for a discussion with Joy Reid on Sunday.
The 69th mayor of the Fountain City is set to appear on the news cable network at 10:45 a.m. to talk about the U.S. Constitution and its relevance today.
She was on the show in April, focusing on insights in the Congressional race between Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District. Handel won the seat in a contested race.
Tomlinson was a successful trial attorney and director of a non-profit renewal organization before making her first mayoral run in 2010. She won re-election in 2014.
Although the mayor flirted with a possible run for governor in 2018, Tomlinson has decided not to seek any other statewide office next year. She has said the most likely possibility for a statewide run is the 2020 U.S. Senate race for the seat held by Sen. David Perdue. In his first term, Perdue represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
Tomlinson has known Reid since the political analyst came to Columbus as keynote speaker in January 2015 for “The Dream Lives” event at the historic Liberty Theatre.
