    Democrats’ hopes of capturing statewide office in Georgia may have been dashed in 2018, but this year the party appears on the cusp of a breakthrough. The state’s two Republican senators are facing increasingly competitive reelection bids, and President Trump’s poll numbers are suffering there as he scrambles to get a handle on the coronavirus pandemic and respond to ongoing civil unrest over racial injustice and police brutality. Democrats, meanwhile, say that changing demographics in Georgia have made the state ripe for political change. Some 322,000 new voters joined the state’s rolls last year, including many young voters and people...

    An Atlanta family said it received a voter registration form this week for their cat Cody Tims – who died 12 years ago.

Secoriea Turner was black, as is a person of interest police are seeking in her killing. So, in admonishing blacks to choose whether they want to be upstanding citizens who happen to be black or, well, that other word – we...

That will never change,” the Braves said in a statement. However, as the Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports, the team is not yet decided about whether to keep the “Tomahawk Chop.”
