Democratic presidential debate in the NPU!

Fantastic news!

From https://www.ajc.com/news/state--regional-govt--politics/democratic-prez-debate-sidesteps-suburbs-for-star-atlanta-studio/CykbostiWVNq6LMoq7nB2O/ :

The Democratic presidential debate will be held next month at Tyler Perry Studios, according to several party officials, sidestepping the suburbs for the newly opened $250 million complex near Atlanta’s airport. 
The studio was selected for the Nov. 20 debate after jockeying that pitted Perry’s studio in heavily Democratic southwest Atlanta against the sparkling new performance arts center in Sandy Springs, once-solid Republican territory that’s become increasingly competitive.
We'll keep an eye on this. A proud moment for our neighborhood and our city!
