Jon Ossoff

The Democrats’ $8 Million Man: What would a Jon Ossoff victory mean?

The country is watching Jon Ossoff

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?

Roy Barnes on the Confederate flag and where the South needs to go from here

Barnes, a throwback to Georgia’s once mighty but now dismantled Democratic machine, was eager to talk about the South’s contradictions. And, as the governor who oversaw the revamp of Georgia’s state flag back in 2001—which removed the battle emblem and arguably cost him reelection in 2002—few are more uniquely qualified.
