Report: Cynthia McKinney To Run For Congress Again

HeadlineJan 13, 2004

The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney is planning to run for her old seat in November against the woman who beat her two years ago, Democrat Denise Majette. The newspaper said McKinney’s father confirmed her intentions on Sunday. The announcement came a day after Cynthia McKinney issued a statement turning down an invitation from the Green Party to run on its ticket for president. During her last term in Congress McKinney was one of the most vocal critics of the Bush administration, the so-called war on terror and U.S. support for Israel.
