McKinney announces bid to reclaim her Congressional seat
DECATUR, Ga. - Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who claimed "malicious crossover voting" by Repubicans caused her defeat two years ago, announced Saturday that she will try to reclaim the 4th Congressional District seat now held by Denise Majette.
McKinney lost the 2002 election in the Democratic primary in August when Republican crossover votes help Majette win the nomination with 77 percent of the vote. Majette also easily won election in the general election that year.
McKinney had little to say about Majette in announcing her intent to run again, instead choosing to blast President Bush.
"George Bush has given us answers that don't answer, explanations that don't explain and conclusions that don't conclude," she said.
