Atlanta Journal-Constitution: What Marjorie Taylor Greene did not apologize for

[…] Emily’s List, the powerful advocacy group that supports pro-choice Democratic women, has expanded its “On Notice” opposition program to include Georgia and a slate of other states with Republican-controlled legislatures.

The group also put Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Attorney General Chris Carr “On Notice.” The designation means the group will funnel resources toward recruiting, training and supporting candidates to challenge them in those races.

The Georgia Legislature narrowly approved one of the strictest anti-abortion laws in the nation shortly after Gov. Brian Kemp was elected governor, and the measure was quickly blocked in federal court.

Emily Cain, the group’s executive director, said it will work to “replace anyone who puts a dangerous political agenda before their constituents with a Democratic pro-choice woman.”

In the 2020 cycle, it spent more than $20 million in state and local elections, and it plans to top that total in the next vote.
