Rep. Lucy McBath (D-Ga.) announced Thursday that she will pursue election in Georgias 6th District in 2024 after a federal judge approved a GOP-led redistricting plan, which changed her current 7th District seat to favor Republicans.
The Atlanta congresswoman promised to continue a legal fight against the new district maps but vowed to run in the 6th District if the current maps stand.
I refuse to allow an extremist few Republicans decide when my work in Congress is finished, she said in a statement. I hope that the judicial system will not allow the state legislature to suppress the will of Georgia voters.
However, if the maps passed by the state legislature stand for the 2024 election cycle, I will be running for re-election to Congress in GA-06 because too much is at stake to stand down, she added.

SACRAMENTO -- California's secretary of state included former President Donald Trump on the certified list of candidates released Thursday for the state's March 5 primary.
Secretary of State Shirley Weber faced political pressure to reject Trump's candidacy in the state, including from Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis, a fellow Democrat who urged her in a Dec. 20 letter to "explore every legal option" to remove the former president from the California ballot. Weber later responded that she was guided by "the rule of law," and indicated the proper venue to resolve ballot challenges was in the courts.
This comes after Maine's Democratic secretary of state removed Trump from the state's presidential primary ballot under the Constitution's insurrection clause, becoming the first election official to take action unilaterally as the U.S. Supreme Court is poised to decide whether the former president remains eligible to return to the White House.
The decision by Secretary of State Shenna Bellows follows a ruling earlier this month by the Colorado Supreme Court that booted Trump from the ballot there under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. That decision has been stayed until the U.S. Supreme Court decides whether Trump is barred by the Civil War-era provision, which prohibits those who "engaged in insurrection" from holding office.

and have attended dozens of Republican candidate town halls.
A GOOD candidate doesnt get tripped up by a question from the audience (any question is considered fair game) and doesnt need to whine that it was from a Democratic plant.
No Melania. No Barron, No Ivanka. No Jr. No Eric.
Tomorrow: three hours to LAX and 14 hours to Sydney.

ITS CALLED ELECTION INTERFERENCE. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Heres the problem.
Ive listened to multiple discussions about applying the 14th Amendment to Trumps eligibility, and they also start with we know he committed insurrection, but . The problem is, WE DONT KNOW.
its legally true that Trump doesnt have to be convicted for the 14th Amendment to apply, but absent a conviction, we dont have a fact pattern that establishes that he did. You dont KNOW he did, you believe he did. And if we asked everyone here to explain how he did, wed likely get a hundred different answer.
It is an established fact that Trump is 35 years old and a natural born citizen. It is not an established fact that he engaged in or supported insurrection. We have one ruling by one Judge in one State which is likely to differ from rulings in other States. This is why its essential to have a Federal verdict from a Federal case applicable nationwide.
The epicenter was just west of the small town of Quilcene, Washington.
Back in October, a 4.3 magnitude earthquake hit south of Port Townsend in Scow Bay, between Indian and Marrowstone islands.
Before these two, the last time Washington state had a 4.0 magnitude earthquake was in 2019, when a 4.6 earthquake hit near Monroe.
Didnt feel anything in Seattle
