Georgia Democrats elect first black woman to be a major party nominee for governor

Democrat Stacey Abrams won Tuesday's Georgia primary for governor and became the first black woman to be nominated by a major party for governor. She will face either Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle or Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp in the general election. In the state's sixth district, another black woman, Lucy McBath, advanced to a runoff election for a shot at making the general election, where she would face U.S. Rep. Karen Handel. Greg Bluestein, political reporter for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, joins CBSN to discuss the key races.
