Rep. McBath’s impeachment vote could hurt her reelection chances

1SHARES

Georgia Rep. Lucy McBath (D) defeated incumbent Rep. Karen Handel in 2018 by 1%, so it was expected that Handel would challenge McBath in the 2020 presidential election, especially after it was exposed that McBath’s primary residence is in Tennessee, not Georgia.

Rep. McBath is vulnerable. Very vulnerable.

The appeal that she had during 2018, running on a gun violence platform after her son was killed by a firearm, has been overshadowed with her recent vote to impeach President Donald Trump.
