If you hated the the 2014 Braves, you might love the 2014 World Series. The Braves drove us to distraction and brought “termination” to Frank Wren, the general manager who built them, by swinging big, missing big and spitting the bit in September.

12:56 p.m. — The jury that is in it’s 11th day of deliberations in the corruption trial of suspended DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis took it’s hour-long break of lunch, still unable to agree on verdicts for any of the 13 charges against him.
At midnight tonight, the latest round of fundraising numbers in the U.S. Senate race will be set in stone. But it could be days before the toplines leak out — and weeks before we see a full summary of who gave to whom.
Michelle Nunn: She has spent time fundraising all across the country, from the liberal stronghold of New York City to the sunny bastion of Los Angeles. Those trips have been fruitful, accounting for more than half of her total contributions.
From Fouriezos’ report:
Nunn raised $2.7 million in Georgia – and $3 million outside of it. She raised more than $400,000 in New York, California and Washington D.C. Neither of the other candidates had a single state, besides Georgia, give their campaign more than $400,000.
Take a look:
U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston, who has had the most success in-state:
The aspiring Republican nominee for Senate, who still has to win the July 22 runoff, raised $2.9 million in Georgia – the most of any candidate. That paired with a race-high 4,258 contributions in the state, for an average of almost $684 per donation.
David Perdue, the frontrunner in the May 20 primary, has contributed $1.6 million from his personal coffers:
Perdue has broadcast himself as a Washington D.C. “outsider,” and his fundraising reflects that. He only received six contributions for a whopping $15,600 from the nation’s capital. That’s compared to almost $116,000 for Kingston and $668,000 for Nunn.
