Voting election security hacking Atlanta Georgia

Georgia’s elections system desperately needs an update—but how?

Planned Parenthood’s $800,000 fight to get Jon Ossoff elected wasn’t enough

In the end it wasn’t enough. Not the millions of dollars that poured in from frustrated Democrats across the country.

What to make of new polling that shows Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old Democrat who’s never before run for public office, has as much voter support as the top three Republican candidates combined? It’s no wonder that some observers view the wide-open race in the heavily Republican 6th—the special election is on April 18, the runoff in June—as an effective referendum on the already troubled Trump presidency.

Senate race starts attracting wild cards on GOP side

Even as the pieces fall into their expected places for next year’s U.S. Senate race, wild cards are emerging. This morning, it was some guy named David Perdue, a business executive who also happens to be the cousin of a certain former Georgia governor.
