One of the country’s largest conferences for progressives was in Atlanta this weekend. Founded ten years by readers and writers of the progressive site Daily Kos, the convention is attended by approximately 3,000 organizers, activists and a slate of Democrat politicians. All told there were more 80 panel sessions, more than 40 training sessions, keynotes, music and film, and networking opportunities.

The convention is not cheap. Activist registration ran at nearly $400 and a Day Pass cost $175. The local discount Day Pass only cost $99 and it seemed many Georgians turned out for the event. One particular Georgian attending the conference was former Georgia House Minority Leader and now governor candidate Stacey Abrams.
