The Georgia General Assembly convened Monday to begin the second year of a two-year session.

Republicans hold big majorities in both the House and the Senate, but House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams (D-Atlanta) says Democrats can still make a difference.

In a wide-ranging conversation with Denis O’Hayer, Abrams talked about where and how Democrats can draw battle lines to get what they want — and where they will have to simply resist new GOP legislation they might not like.
