U.S. House runs

2018

Manning unsuccessfully ran for U.S. House of Representatives in the 2018 Midterms, losing to incumbent Republican Ted Budd by six percentage points[2] despite having campaigned heavily, holding hundreds of political events and reaching out to tens of thousands of voters.[3] During the run, Manning voiced opposition to Nancy Pelosi despite having previously donated to her.[4]

2020

Following an upheld[5] court-mandated[6] redistricting of North Carolina's congressional districts in late 2019, the 6th district was moved from a Republican stronghold to a Democrat-favoring area.[7][8] Manning announced in early December 2020 her run for the seat,[9] and Republican representative Mark Walker of the district soon announced his retirement due to facing nearly no chances of re-elected.[10]

Manning won her party's primary,[11] and will face Republican Lee Haywood in the general election.[12] The vacated House seat is expected to be a mostly safe blue flip,[13][14][15] as the newly drawn sixth congressional district is very liberal.

Political positions

Manning supports citizenship for illegal aliens and is undecided on whether marijuana should be legalized.[16] She is also pro-abortion and supports Obamacare.[17]
