ATLANTA, Aug. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) launches Politically Georgia, a new subscriber digital product and premium newsletter for Georgia political news.
Politically Georgia provides subscribers a new source for statewide reporting on Georgia politics. The AJC's experienced journalists will bring readers the most important stories of the day, with a focus on elections, health care, immigration, the economy, opinions and columnists.

"There's nothing that affects the lives of Georgians more than their state and local governments," political reporter Greg Bluestein said. "And knowing how those state and local governments work, knowing what the governor and policymakers are doing – and how they interact and influence Georgians – is crucial to any informed citizen."
The Politically Georgia staff is supported by the largest newsroom in Georgia. Among the contributors:
- Greg Bluestein, reports on the governor's office and state political leaders.
