Trump grand jury churns on in Georgia

Inside today’s Swing State Georgia:

Georgia Democrats bid for an early 2024 primary date.
Abrams hits back at Kemp in the latest ad volley.
As the national media focuses on the Jan. 6 committee hearings on Capitol Hill, testimony quietly continues behind closed doors in Georgia - before the Fulton County special grand jury probing former President Donald Trump.
The AJC’s Tamar Hallerman tells us that jurors heard yesterday from Democratic state Sens. Jen Jordan and Elena Parent, who were both at a Dec. 2020 hearing with Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.
Jordan and Parent challenged Giuliani’s testimony about Georgia’s elections system, which was part of Donald Trump’s post-election firehose of conspiracy theories, falsehoods and half-truths.
Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr testified before the grand jury on Tuesday. Today, Georgia state Rep. Bee Nguyen - who just won the Democratic Party nomination for Secretary of State this week - is slated to appear before the special grand jury. She sits on a House committee that also heard from Giuliani in late 2020.
