President Trump tweeted his congratulations to Republican candidate Marjorie Greene on Friday, calling the QAnon believer a "big winner" after her strong results from Georgia's congressional primary.

Why it matters: Greene was endorsed by Trump ahead of Georgia's elections. QAnon is an extremist group that believes an anonymous internet user is waging war against the "deep state" from within the federal government.

  • Currently, House Republicans have refused to comment on Greene’s belief in "a group that the FBI has flagged as a potential domestic terrorist threat" and her possible place within their ranks, the Washington Post reports.

By the numbers: Greene didn't receive a majority but did finish first Tuesday with 41% of the vote in a strong red district.

  • She will face a runoff election Aug. 11 against physician John Cowan, who was 20 points behind her.

President Trump will move within days to nominate his third Supreme Court justice in just three-plus short years — and shape the court for literally decades to come, top Republican sources tell Axios.

Driving the news: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans are ready to move to confirm Trump's nominee before Election Day, just 46 days away, setting up one of the most consequential periods of our lifetimes, the sources say.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg — feminist icon, legal giant, toast of pop culture — left this statement with granddaughter Clara Spera as cancer closed in: "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed."

The big picture: For all that the nation owes "Notorious RBG" — the hip-hop-inspired nickname she enjoyed and embraced — Republicans are planning to do their best to be sure her robe is quickly filled, despite that last wish, with her ideological polar opposite.
