The Republican sponsor of a crackdown on sex trafficking said Democrat Stacey Abrams “deliberately avoided taking a public position” on the debate, highlighting her decision twice not to vote on the measure even though she was at the Capitol.

Abrams, who faces Republican Brian Kemp in November’s race for governor, responded through a spokeswoman that she was concerned the legislation limited the discretion of judges.

As Georgia Democrats Undermine Law Enforcement Officials, Stacey Abrams Owes Voters Answers

Far-left Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has already shown that she believes radical politics come before keeping Georgia families safe, accusing law enforcement officials on the campaign trail of “terrorizing families” by simply doing their jobs. But with her Democrat allies openly undermining policies designed to uphold the rule of law and protect America’s borders, it’s time for her to be honest with voters.

Editorial: Some would see Georgia gubernatorial win as validation of socialist revolution

A year ago, Georgia legislator Stacey Abrams boasted to the liberal Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta of having set out in 2008 to “disrupt the operations of the Republicans and slow down their agenda.”

“We weren’t going to overthrow the legislative order,” she said. “We didn’t have the means to topple the speaker of the House. But we could make their work harder. We could summon their victims to the Capitol. We could resist.”

The Macon Telegraph looks at what a trade war might look like for pecan farmers

The Macon Telegraph looks at what a trade war might look like for pecan farmers

After President Donald Trump placed tariffs on imported Chinese products, the Chinese retaliated by raising tariffs on U.S. exports to China. That includes an increase of the tariff on pecans from 7 percent to 47 percent. On Tuesday, the White House announced $12 billion in aid to farmers impacted by the trade war. The tariff increase has little immediate impact because pecans aren’t being exported this time of year, but it could mean a lot once the harvest begins in the fall and growers are looking to sell their pecans. China is especially important to local growers because the Chinese love Georgia’s big, meaty pecans. Pearson Farm in Fort Valley has about 3,000 acres of pecan trees, and about 60 percent of the crop is exported to China, said Lawton Pearson, a partner in the business. Currently pecans are the only crop in the state significantly impacted by the trade war, said Julie McPeake, communications director for the Georgia Department of Agriculture. China also put a 25 percent tariff on soybeans, a big Georgia crop, but McPeake said that shouldn’t impact Georgia farmers. Although China is a big buyer of U.S. soybeans, McPeake said most of Georgia’s soybeans go toward making feed for the state’s large poultry industry.
