Listen to Stacey Abrams. I mean that literally. Lsten to Stacey Abrams in her 15-minute interview on Pod Save America last night. Her interview starts at the 52-minute mark.
Stacey believes that can win both seats in Georgia. I believe her. Do you? We can win both seats, but only if we believe we can and we donate and work our collective behinds off to make it happen.
Here’s my challenge: Listen to the interview with Stacey Abrams and then come to the Georgia thread I’ll put up on Monday, and then let’s talk about what she said. Is anyone game for that?
In the meantime, opportunities to help Georgia are rolling in so fast I can’t get them all organized and in one place.

The New Georgia Project is a nonpartisan effort to register and civically engage Georgians. It was founded by Stacey Abrams in 2010.
Georgia’s population is growing and becoming increasingly diverse. Over the past decade, the population of Georgia increased 18%. The New American Majority – people of color, those 18 to 29 years of age, and unmarried women – is a significant part of that growth. The New American Majority makes up 62% of the voting age population in Georgia, but they are only 53% of registered voters.
