YOU. LET'S BRING IN ABC'S ZOHREEN SHAH FOR MORE ON THIS. SERENE, CHENEY IS SAYING THAT SHE IS CONSIDERING RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT. WHAT COULD THAT LOOK LIKE? ONE OF THE NEXT STEPS? >> REMARKABLE, RIGHT? WE HAVEN'T HIT THE MIDTERMS AND DOCUMENT 2024. FIRST, I SHOULD SAY SHE'S PLANNING TO LAUNCH AN ANTI TRUMP GROUP TO IMPOSE HIS EXPECTED 2024 BID. SHE SAYS THAT IS GOING TO COME IN THE COMING WEEKS. SHE WANTS TO EDUCATE PEOPLE ON WHAT SHE SAYS IS AN ONGOING THREAT TO THE REPUBLIC. ON THAT TOPIC, IF SHE WILL RUN FOR PRESIDENT, SHE SAID ANOTHER OUTLET THIS MORNING SHE IS THINKING ABOUT. AT THE BIG QUESTION NOW, COULD SHE WIN? YOU SAW THE RESULTS LAST NIGHT. ALLOTTED EXPERTS WILL SAY PROBABLY NOT A. SHE MIGHT BE ABLE TO DRAG TRUMP DOWN ENOUGH SO THAT HE DOES NOT GO ON TO BECOME THE NOMINEE. SHE REALLY WANTS IT TO BE A PART OF HER LEGACY TO BRING DONALD TRUMP DOWN. SHE IS ALSO EXPECTED TO CONTINUE ON THE JANUARY SIX COMMITTEE DESPITE HER LOSS LAST NIGHT. SHE REALLY WANTS TO FIGHT TRUMP'S ELECTION LIES. >> MEANWHILE, IN ALASKA, REPUBLICAN SENATOR LISA MURKOWSKI IS EXPECTED TO ADVANCE TO THE GENERAL ELECTION ALONG WITH THE OTHER THREE TOP IN THE COUNTRY -- >> RIGHT NOW, YOU CAN SEE IT RIGHT THERE ON THE BOARD. 44% OF THE BOAT WITH 67% OF THE VOTE.

THE TOP FOUR PEOPLE, REGARDLESS OF THEIR PARTY, WILL MOVE ON TO NOVEMBER. TSHIBAKA, AS YOU KNOW, BACKED BY DONALD TRUMP. THAT COULD MAKE THE NOVEMBER ELECTION PARTICULARLY TOUGH. WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN TRUMP BACKS PEOPLE. >> FORMER GOVERNOR AND VICE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE WILL BE AMONG THE TOP FOUR CANDIDATES FOR ATLANTA'S OUT LARGE DISTRICT. SHE IS CALLING THE STATES VOTING SYSTEM CRAZY AND CONVOLUTED. HOW DOES IT ALL WORK? >> IT IS CONFUSING. LOOK, RIGHT NOW, I SHOULD SAY THE DEMOCRAT IN THE RACE HAS 38% OF THE VOTE. SHE HAS 32%. AND THEN THE REPUBLICAN IN THAT RACE HAS 29%. IT WON'T STAY THAT WAY VERY LONG. THE WAY THE SYSTEM WORKS, THE RANK CHOICE VOTING, IF SOMEONE GETS 50%, 50% OF THE VOTE OR MORE, THEY WIN OUT RIGHT. IT IS OVER. IF THEY DON'T, WHICH HAPPENED IN THIS CASE, THE PERSON WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF VOTES, THEY ARE OUT. AND THEN THE PEOPLE WHO WERE THE SECOND CHOICE, THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED IN THOSE BALLOTS, THEY BASICALLY TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THEIR SECOND CHOICE FOR CANDIDATE. THOSE GET REDISTRIBUTED. YEAH, A LITTLE CONVOLUTED AND CONFUSING. IN THEORY, IT IS SUPPOSED TO HELP MAKE ELECTIONS A LITTLE LESS POLARIZED. THAT
