We already told you about the three Georgians with speaking roles at next week’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

But the Hillary Clinton campaign has also released a longer list of folks who will grace the stage at the Wells Fargo Arena Monday through Thursday. You’ll note that Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed is on the list, but that House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams, D-Atlanta, and former state Sen. Jason Carter, D-Atlanta are not.

The reason: The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee tapped Abrams and Carter will be introducing a video from his grandfather, former President Jimmy Carter.
