Comey is going to come out of this as a hero - or be discredited.

Hillary had a lot of headwind against her, both in terms of Russians, 30 years of GOP attacks, and really zero charm on the campaign trail - but she also ran one of the worst campaigns in recent memory. Her statements now are just making her loss worse.

It seems Elon Musk is keeping his promse.

Even if Trump hadn't acted unilaterally on this the Republicans and more Democrats than you would think probably would not have ratified the accord.

This reminds me a little bit of how the US treated the Kyoto Protocol

Unless the republicans stand up to Trump I don't really see anything happening anytime soon.

I just checked the AP and it's not looking great. Doable but not great:

Cobb 42% - 37 out of 51 reporting
DeKalb 57% - 41 out of 43 reporting
Fulton 55% - 19 out of 116 reporting

So it looks like it's all on Fulton.

Also there's this: 6th District vote: Fulton extends polling hours; DeKalb and Cobb smooth
