In the Republican runoff for Georgia Governor, Brian Kemp crushed Casey Cagle by a margin so large Kemp’s over-sized pickup truck could easily fit in it. Kemp won with about 69 percent of the vote, sweeping the entire state — including the metro Atlanta area where Cagle was expected to have a stronghold.

Big River Steel said Friday that it will expand its operations near Osceola, Arkansas with a $1.2 billion investment that will double its hot-rolled steel production and result in the hiring of some 500 new employees.
Salaries for those new jobs, according to the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, will average $75,000 a year.
Big River opened its scrap-recycling and steel production facility south of Osceola in northeast Arkansas just last year, after an investment of about $1.3 billion.
