We have neither here.”Two judges appointed by President George W. Bush, also a Republican, signed onto Bibas’ decision. Trump campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis said in a statement that the Trump campaign has been denied the opportunity to fully present its evidence in court. Trump appointed three of the Supreme Court’s nine members: Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and most recently Amy Coney Barrett. “Well, the problem is, it’s hard to get into the Supreme Court,” Trump said. Federal judges, in general, are reluctant to appear to be interfering in elections, legal experts said.

ATLANTA — Georgia voters on Tuesday are choosing the short-term replacement for civil rights legend John Lewis. Former Atlanta City Council member Kwanza Hall and former Morehouse College President Robert Franklin are contesting a runoff election. The 5th Congressional District includes most of the city of Atlanta, as well as some suburban areas of Fulton, DeKalb and Clayton counties. Hall and Franklin both contend they can get something accomplished during a short stay in Congress. Franklin and Hall share similar positions on issues, but Franklin, now a theology professor at Emory University, preaches a higher cause as well.

Mamdani is one of three South Asian members of the Democratic Socialists of America who won historic down-ballot races earlier this month. Their wins point to the growing prominence of young South Asians on the left, many of whom, in the past half-decade, have transitioned from community activism to electoral politics. This year wasn’t the first time South Asian socialists found success in local elections. Some South Asian Democratic Socialists of America candidates pitched long-shot bids this year, and even in defeat, they’re laying the groundwork for the future. A win would have made the Sri Lankan immigrant the first Muslim and South Asian woman elected to the lower chamber.

While smaller names typically see outsized price moments compared to their larger brethren, the small cap gains for November have nearly doubled the roughly 11% gain in the S&P 500 this month. Small cap stocks are generally seen as the first to recover as the U.S. economy pulls out of a recession. In the large cap S&P 500, the same four sectors account for about 24.5% of the overall index weighting.

ATLANTA — Jon Ossoff is ending the Trump era the same way he began it: as a young Democrat unexpectedly at the center of the political universe. If Democrats win both seats, they'll end the Trump era by giving Vice President-elect Kamala Harris the tiebreaking vote in the Senate. It would also be vindication for Ossoff, whose loss in the House race set off a familiar circular firing squad among Democrats. But the data [from Ossoff's race] told a different story," she said. She won in 2018 by 317 votes, flipping the state House seat formerly occupied by Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

I know how to be effective.”The history of Congress is dotted with members whose terms were best measured in days.

Georgia's Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said President Trump "should leave quietly," after the state's election recount confirmed President-elect Joe Biden's win. Earlier this week, President Trump called the Georgia lawmaker "an enemy of the people" and accused him, without evidence, of hiding "tens of thousands" of illegal votes. Georgia's Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said it would be best for President Trump to "leave quietly," after the state's election recount confirmed President-elect Joe Biden's win. Unlike many Republicans in the state, Raffensperger endorsed Trump for president in early 2016, before he was even the clear GOP front-runner. Last week, Raffensperger told a local TV station he and his wife have been receiving death threats ever since.

The 2020 election shattered voter turnout records, with massive numbers of Americans voting for both Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Trump helped to both turn out rural voters for the GOP and suburban voters for Democrats. Contrary to popular consensus before 2020, a turnout surge did not accrue overwhelmingly to Democrats. But Republicans also enjoyed major gains in turnout in rural areas, which helped to keep Trump competitive even as Democrats swung suburbs. That strategy worked in 2020, but if Trump is not on the ballot again, Democrats cannot assume that their gains will be repeated.
