HOPE YOU GOT YOUR TICKETS!
Former President Barack Obama will be in Atlanta on Friday to campaign for Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.
Obama will attend a “Get out the Vote Rally” along with Abrams and other Democratic candidates at Forbes Arena at Morehouse College Friday night., Abrams announced in a tweet on Monday.
The state’s Democratic Party has set up 11 locations statewide to get two free tickets – first-come, first-serve – from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. this past Wednesday.
President Donald Trump is also expected in Georgia over the next week. Trump is reportedly coming to Macon to campaign for the Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate for governor. Details have not been announced for that yet, but Lt. Sean DeFoe with the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office says they’ve been contacted about working out a plan for road closures and other details.
Polls have Abrams and Kemp virtually tied, making a December a possibility should neither candidate get more than 50 percent of the vote.
