Sally Yates for Governor? No Way.
Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates is dismissing calls from Democrats for her to enter the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race.
“I am totally ruling out the governor’s race," Yates said in an interview published Tuesday by The New Yorker. "I am not running for governor.”
Yates drew plenty of praise from the left after her testimony to senators earlier this month defending her brief time in the Trump White House, which included warning others about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's possibly compromising interactions with Russian officials.
President Trump fired Yates for refusing to back his travel ban against several Muslim-majority nations.
