ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has accepted a judge’s findings and says U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is qualified to run for reelection.

Earlier Friday, a judge concluded that a group of voters who had challenged her eligibility failed to prove she engaged in insurrection after taking office.

State Administrative Law Judge Charles Beaudrot announced his decision after a daylong hearing in April that included arguments from lawyers for the voters and for Greene, as well as extensive questioning of Greene herself.

State law says Beaudrot had to submit his findings to Raffensperger, who then had to decide whether to accept that conclusion.
