PHILADELPHIA — The list of Georgia speakers at the Democratic National Convention just keeps growing.
U.S. Rep. John Lewis, D-Atlanta, will address delegates at 5 p.m. Tuesday, the same day that Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and former state Sen. Jason Carter, D-Atlanta, also grace the stage at the Wells Fargo Arena.
House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams, D-Atlanta, has a speaking role tonight at 6 and former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin will likely at least be on the stage as co-chair of the national platform committee.
Carter will introduce a video of his grandfather, former President Jimmy Carter.
By the way, Lewis, that noted veteran of the non-violent Civil Rights Movement, was also today named a sergeant-at-arms for the convention.
