RedState Gathering could snarl Atlanta traffic

Buckhead’s already notorious traffic will likely be worse Friday as the presidential candidates, their entourages, 150 credentialed media and 700 activists make their way to the Intercontinental Buckhead Atlanta.

The hotel, at 3315 Peachtree Road, is near Lenox Square, at the corner of Peachtree and Highland Drive

Saturday could see similar congestion around the hotel and, that night, in downtown Atlanta near the College Football Hall of Fame, where billionaire Donald Trump will address convention-goers at a RedState Tailgate.

Most of the top-tier Republican hopefuls will head for Atlanta following Thursday night's debate in Cleveland. Here's who is coming.
