(National Journal) – VOTING: GOP Battleground Secretary of State Hopefuls Back Election Conspiracy Theories

“Reuters interviewed nine of the 15 declared Republican candidates for secretary of state in five battleground states—Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada—and reviewed public statements by all of the candidates. Ten of the 15 have either declared that the 2020 election was stolen or called for their state’s results to be invalidated or further investigated.”

  • “Only two of the nine candidates Reuters interviewed said that” President Biden “won the election. … A majority said they backed a Republican push for more audits or other investigations of the 2020 vote, despite dozens of audits, recounts and court rulings that confirmed Biden’s victory.” (Reuters)
  • AD BUY. “​​The progressive group End Citizens United and Let America Vote Action Fund will spend $5.8 million to promote Democrats’ voting rights compromise bill with television, mail and digital advertisements in” Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, and West Virginia. (NBC News)
