Welcome to Post Politics Now.

Today, former president Donald Trump held a rally in Pennsylvania with celebrity doctor and GOP Senate hopeful Mehmet Oz. As of closing edition, Trump had yet to mention abortion, a topic he’s been silent on since the news broke that the Supreme Court appears to be on the verge of overturning Roe v. Wade. It was him, after all, who named three of the conservative judges who could vote to overturn the law.

Meanwhile, a judge in Georgia recommended that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) remain on the ballot, rejecting a challenge from a group that argued her rhetoric before the Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection disqualified her. Georgia’s secretary of state will have the final say.
