NEWS BRIEF: Rep. Lucy McBath will run in another district after Republican gerrymandering
GOP Gerrymandering forces a Democratic primary fight.
U.S. Rep. Lucy McBath plans to run for Congress in the 7th Congressional District after the Republican-controlled legislature’s redistricting efforts turned her current 6th District to the right. Her opponent will be another Democrat, incumbent U.S. Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux. An article in New York magazine says, “It will be an interesting primary given Bordeaux’s conspicuous centrist deficit-hawk positioning during the long intra-Democratic debate over the Build Back Better legislation.” nymag.com
