Hi, r/IAmA! We’re the Savannah Morning News politics team. We covered the 2020 elections in Georgia, which for the first time since 1992 went blue in the presidential election. Ask us anything!
UPDATE: 3 p.m. It's been fun y'all, but I've gotta go do some work. Be good to each other!
We’re days removed from one of the most contentious elections in U.S. history and Democratic candidate Joe Biden was elected the 46th president of the U.S. Instrumental to Biden’s victory were wins in key battleground states that in 2016 voted for the Republican Party. One of those states was Georgia, a state that had not gone blue in the presidential elections since 1992 when Bill Clinton beat George H.W. Bush. The margin of victory in the Peach State was so slim that the state has said there will be a recount.The Savannah Morning News newspaper is one of the oldest newspapers in the state and its politics team has had a front row seat to everything that led to last week’s elections, including two senate races that are headed a runoff in January. Adam Van Brimmer is our Editorial Page Editor and host of our podcast The Commute and Will Pebble is our enterprise and politics reporter.
