I love the prog take on GA politics. Like Jason Carter has a ghost of a chance to win. They never give up.

The Carter’s have 4 children, but only Amy (the youngest) lived in the WH.

Now, if memory serves me, the surviving Carters are the very last white Democrats in the state of Georgia, correct?
