Kathy Manning, born December 3, 1956 (age 64), is an attorney and liberal Democrat who ran for United States House of Representatives from North Carolina's 6th congressional district. She previously ran unsuccessfully from the 13th district in 2018, losing by a close margin in a mostly Republican district then.

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 being re-elected.[10]

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

Manning easily won the general election in the redrawn district by over twenty points.[16]

Political positions

Manning supports citizenship for illegal aliens and is undecided on whether marijuana should be legalized.[17] She is also pro-abortion and supports Obamacare.[18]
