The breakdown

1. President Joe Biden announced his re-election campaign, but will he struggle to secure support?

  • Democratic leaders around the nation have supported Biden, assuming he could beat a candidate Donald Trump again, but voters are showing they don't want a reprise of the 2020 election.
  • Georgia narrowly picked Biden in 2020. With the fallout of Trump's alleged interference in the state, Biden may focus heavily on Southern states, including Georgia, to win again.

2. Marjorie Taylor Greene was punished by the Republican-led House Committee on Homeland Security.

  • During a hearing with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene called him a "liar" after Mayorkas asserted he was working to end the movement of fentanyl to the U.S.
  • Committee Chair Mark Green (R-Tenn.) approved Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.)'s move to 'take down' Greene's remarks, no longer recognizing her on the committee.
  • Earlier in the same hearing, Greene accused Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) of having an affair "with a Chinese spy."
