After graduating from college, Manning moved to her husband’s hometown of Greensboro in 1987.
From 2009 to 2012, she was the first woman to serve as chairman of the board of directors of the Jewish Federation of North America. She is also Prizmah: Founding Board Chairman of the Jewish Day School Center in New York.
After the court ordered the re-division of constituencies in 2019, Manning’s home in Greensboro was divided into the neighboring sixth district, represented by three-term Republican Mark Walker. The new 6th Regiment included the entire Guildford County and swept westward, occupying more Democratic areas in neighboring Forsyth County, including almost all of Winston-Salem. The old District 6 included the eastern part of Greensboro and most of the eastern part of the triangle and some of the outer suburbs of the triangle.
On December 2, 2019, a few hours before the release of the new map, Manning announced that she would participate in the sixth game. The new district is more compact and democratic than its predecessor. If it exists in 2016, Hillary Clinton will win it with more than 59% of the vote, which is almost a mirror image of Trump’s 56% in the old sixth. On paper, the new District 6 is one of the most democratic and white majority areas in the South.
