The breakdown: 

1. Judge disqualifies Fulton DA from investigating GOP lieutenant governor nominee in election probe.

Tamar Hallerman speaks on what this means for the Fulton DA.


2. How will Roe v. Wade affect turnout in November? 

  • A Marquette Law School Poll shows that there is little evidence that the ruling changed partisan motivation to vote in the 2022 election.
  • Maya King reports that Democrats like Abrams are balancing messages of the economy and this ruling. 


3. Camden Spacesport deal is no more. 

  • The Current reports that the corporate owner of the 4,000-acre Camden property required for the county’s spaceport project is no longer negotiating with the county for the land.
  • Camden County spent more than $11 million to develop its Spaceport Camden to launch small commercial rockets up to 12 times a year.
    • Voters in Camden County rejected the spaceport in a special March referendum vote. 

      • Georgia's Supreme Court will decide if that vote is legally binding. 

Margaret Coker on Spaceport.


4. Republican Buddy Carter votes against codifying gay marriage.
