No, the Fulton County GOP has not endorsed @mooreforatlanta’s campaign for mayor, the chair tells me. So does Burt Jones, the GOP candidate for LG who is pictured in one of the fliers going around. #gapol #atlpol
Says Fulton GOP chair Trey Kelly:
“The image is a manufactured photo. We have supporters backing Reed, Moore and all the other candidates being it's a non-partisan election.” #gapol #atlpol
The Fulton GOP hosted a meet-and-greet for Moore last week, though other candidates are also courting Republican support. Here’s an invite to a Buckhead Young Republicans event with Reed later this month, sure to focus on the cityhood push he opposes. #gapol #atlpol Image
FWIW, the response from Moore’s campaign to the false flyer: “I see it’s the silly season in Atlanta politics…” #gapol #atlpol Image
Get ready for more shenanigans as early voting begins … #gapol #atlpol… Image

Just in: The Georgia Senate is out with its draft of congressional districts, and this version makes Democratic Rep. @lucymcbath’s suburban district far more competitive — and shrinks Democratic @RepBourdeaux’s swing district to make it much safer for the incumbent. #gapol
It shores up @RepLoudermilk’s district (11) a bit by slashing the slice of north Atlanta he now represents. And it shifts the boundaries of Rep. Clyde’s safe GOP district (9) to include parts of Gwinnett, moving Athens, Jackson, Madison and Elbert to the 10th. #gapol
Looks like Reps. Bourdeaux (7) and Clyde (9) were both drawn out of their districts in this map, though they can still run for their current seats even if the final maps show they live outside the boundaries. #gapol

A truly bipartisan event: Georgia political leaders, judges, nonprofit advocates and business executives are helping to launch the Isakson Initiative in honor of the former Georgia US senator to research neurocognitive diseases like Parkinson’s. #gapol
.@SpeakerRalston talks of Isakson’s commitment to expanding and deepening the Savannah port. “He answered a call to serve rooted firmly in the belief that politics is not a zero sum game. We can all work together toward a better tomorrow.” #gapol…
Ralston: (Isakson) led by being inclusive and recognizing that those with whom he might have disagreed with bring value to the discussion … He was not about bombast and name-calling, but bringing people together to find solutions. #gapol

“Stacey would you like to take his place?" Trump says to @staceyabrams of @GovKemp. "It’s OK with me.” #gapol…
@staceyabrams @GovKemp It's only a matter of time until these clips become a campaign ad targeting Trump supporters from a Democratic front group with a name like "Georgians for Fairness and Integrity" ... #gapol
@staceyabrams @GovKemp ... Also this entire Trump speech might as well have been sponsored by Abrams, who is in the middle of a national tour ahead of an expected rematch against Kemp. #gapol…

Donald Trump is set to rally for his GOP favorites in Georgia while Democrats mock from afar. “We’re not even going to pretend to be surprised at the incredible waste of time and money Trump is putting into the roadshow he’s bringing to Georgia.” #gapol…
Right off the bat, Georgia GOP chair David Shafer leads a chant of "audit, audit." He tells the crowd "I'm with you! I'm with you!" There's some bashing of Biden, but there's just as much rehash of lies about 2020 so far. #gapol…
Echoing Shafer, ex-Democrat Vernon Jones calls for an audit of Georgia's election, lying by saying it was riddled with fraud. “It’s time right now for a 159-county audit. We have to audit the books. No more bullshit. It’s time to uncover that lie." #gapol…

I talked to a bunch of Trump rally attendees. David Davidson of Macon told me he’s worried Biden is inflicting too much damage on the country. “We want to see Trump blow it up and tell the truth — that what’s going on this country is totally wrong.” #gapol
Nicki Jones came in from Byron in part to show her disgust for coronavirus restrictions pushed by Biden. “I disagree with mandated vaccines. I see that as too much government intervention ... It’s about freedom and choice. I thought that’s what we are all about.” #gapol
Rodney England tells me he’s backing Kemp despite Trump’s opposition. “I stand behind our governor. I want to vote for him again. He wanted to keep businesses open and he fought the Biden administration.” Several others I spoke with said they were torn over Kemp in 2022. #gapol

Kemp calls special session to redraw Georgia’s political maps — but not crack down on crime #gapol…
Here’s the proclamation #gapol Image
Point 3 above is crafted in a way that appears to leave the door open to a potential vote on Buckhead cityhood, though the governor’s office offered no immediate details … #gapol…
