The campaign trail has been quiet after the Secretary of State announced Georgia's 2020 Presidential Primary was moving to a later date in March. No candidate has made an official campaign stop since the beginning of June. 

That will change this weekend when five White House hopefuls make their way to Atlanta to headline a candidate forum hosted by the Black Church Political Action Committee (PAC).

With more than 600 days until the 2020 presidential elections, and still no date set for Georgian’s to vote in the presidential primary, the state has already seen its first campaign stop.

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) held a rally in Gwinnett County Saturday laying out her plan in front of roughly 1,100 supporters.

Dozens of supporters packed into a converted office in a Jonesboro strip mall Tuesday to catch a glimpse of Georgia's Democratic gubernatorial nominee on the campaign trail.

Behind a curtain and equally enveloped by the 90 percent humidity permeating the space, Stacey Abrams, Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley were calling voters in Clayton County to help knock on doors ahead of the Nov. 6 election.


The words were those of Coretta Scott King, widow of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

But they resulted in a rarely invoked Senate rule being used to formally silence Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.
