The crisis and ensuing rebound saw a "reshuffling" of jobs, entrepreneurial energy, and human capital from worse-off areas towards those that have increasingly captured the benefits of growth, the Economic Innovation Group concluded after comparing demographic data for the 2007-2011 and 2012-2016 periods. The findings show "a big blindspot" in strong national data, including a 3.7 percent unemployment rate that is near a 50-year low, said John Lettieri, co-founder and president of the bipartisan Economic Innovation Group think tank. "The distribution of new jobs, new businesses, the distribution of the best human capital - it is a geographical concentration," Lettieri said.

Stacey Abrams, who if elected would become the first African American woman governor of any state, is running against Georgia's Republican secretary of state, Brian Kemp.
