Edit: I added pictures to my OP in the Georgia Group.

Iíll be updating the Georgia Group post as the evening proceeds. ATL Mayor Bottoms just spoke! Waiting on Senator Ossoff and Senator Reverend Warnock! President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden are scheduled for 6pm EST.

Any DUers here? Iím near the Atlanta Seafood Company food truck.

Edit: Our Senators did not speak. Instead they were seated on the stage behind The President and First Lady. At the end of his speech, after he thanked all who spoke and attended, President Biden introduced our Senators and they joined the Bidens for the final moments of the rally.

The imagery of our President and First Lady with the first Black and first Jewish Senators from Georgia was so powerful, positive and energizing!

Weíve heard from Hank Johnson, Congresswoman Lucy McBath, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison, and Congresswoman Nikemah Williams so far. Congresswoman Carolyn Bordeaux is speaking now at 4:41.

Itís 4:44 now and itís a beautiful day here in Duluth, GA! Slightly overcast and breezy is the best weather for spending all day in or directly next to your car! Thank goodness itís only 82 F, which is just warm for Georgia. I came prepared with lots of water and snacks plus a bag lunch.

I got here about 10:45 this morning.

After going through two initial checkpoints, my car was thoroughly searched by secret service agents and sniffed by their K9 dogs. I was also screened and my bags searched by the agents.

The crowd is excited and looking forward to hearing from ATL Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Leader Stacey Abrams, and our Senators before the POTUS & FLOTUS take the stage!

Iíll add pictures later today.

Celebrating the first 100 Days of the Biden Administration!

Build Back Better!

Getting Back on Track!

31. I agree!! She knows how to engage people. I saw her a couple of times in NW GA

and it was like being in church with a good preacher. She has a calm, sweet, powerful presence that moves your soul. She makes you want to be a better person.

34. It must be much like the way Martin Luther King, Jr. moved people and brought

them together. I was just a teen when he was leading the movement here in GA, but I remember the power of his voice, his words, and his charisma. He was/is a masterful presence.

24. We had a big time!

Iím sure the video will be online.

It was an expertly organized event.

It was a really good day.

Thankfully, I was able to take a day off from work, my partner stayed home with our child, and I had reliable transportation to make the one hour drive into Gwinnett County from my city.

I feel lucky.

21. We're getting ready to re-elect Senator Warnock in 2022!

In 2022, Senator Reverend Warnockís seat, the governor, all state constitutional offices, all state house and senate seats, and all of our congressional seats are on the ballot.

No rest for the weary here in the Peach State.

19. Jill spoke, introduced Joe, Joe spoke...so wonderful!

President Biden introduced Senator Reverend Warnock & Senator Ossoff, who appeared on stage with the Bidens at the very end of the event.

I am very happy & also energized for the big battles ahead of us here in Georgia!

29. I heard heckler but couldn't understand what they were yelling.

President Biden paused and listened, then responded that he was going to work on closing private prisons. He joked that he only had been in office 100 days and he needed at least 5 more days to work on the issue!

Were you there or did you see it on TV?

If President Biden ever comes to your town or community and holds an event, I recommend that you try to attend. It was very exciting for a political nerd like me!

36. Thank you for your full-throated enthusiasm for both the event and sharing it with me.

As I live in Victoria BC, I think it unlikely the President et al will ever get closer than Seattle, and I can't remember a sitting President ever visit there, even. Not that it couldn't have happened, but it escaped my attention, if it did.

I'm happy you were so pleased and excited. It's fantastic to see how inspired people in general are by JRB, but especially here on DU.

I wonder how many people that STRONGLY supported other candidates in the primaries have been enthusiastically "converted" by this fine President.

Thanks again.
