Dems Spending $7 Mil to Control Secretaries of States. Will GOP Let It Happen Again?
One of Soros' most brilliant tactics was capturing elections from the top down. The Secretary of State Project has since been picked up by plenty of leftists who used it very effectively to rig the 2020 election... in 2018.
“We should be prepared for this to be closer to an election week, as opposed to an Election Day, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson warned.
Benson, a veteran of the Southern Poverty Law Center and assorted structural initiatives to benefit Democrat voter strategies nationwide, was backed by a river of cash, with her own fundraising topping $1 million, and iVote throwing in nearly another million.
Republicans were outspent 2 to 1 and Michigan got an ‘Election Week’.
Benson took control in Michigan, while in Arizona, a state where the Republican candidate was expected to win, Katie Hobbs, another radical leftist, won in a close election in 2018.
In Colorado, another Republican favored to win in a state where the secretary of state was usually a GOPer, was cut off at the knees by another leftist backed by a ton of outside cash.
While Republicans wasted money, iVote spent $6 million to rig the battleground in key states.
This time around the Left is preparing to spend $7 million.
A left-leaning group plans to spend $7 million to help elect Democratic secretaries of state and attorneys general in key battlegrounds -- a big investment in down-ballot races that loom large in voting rights battles around the country.
End Citizens United/Let America Vote on Tuesday will endorse six Democratic incumbents as part of its new "democracy defender" program, shared first with CNN. The group is backing Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford, Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, and Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon.
This is going to determine what happens in those elections going forward.
As I wrote after the last election, it's vastly harder to 'unsteal' an election than it is to steal it. Time has unfortunately proven that to be true.
There are no guarantees in life or in politics. But having a leftist in charge of elections dooms them from the start.
Conservatives didn't take the threat seriously enough in 2018. Too many were caught by surprise in 2020. iVote is preparing to spend $10 million on legislative races, but it also intends to keep on spending money on secretary of state elections.
The strategy paid off brilliantly in 2020. Retroactively securing elections in places where it wasn't just a matter of losing a race, but losing to propositions, like Proposition 3 in Michigan, will be harder. And the Biden DOJ will be fighting every effort at election integrity.
And while this current announcement is about protecting existing incumbent Democrat election officials, you can bet that they'll pick and support new candidates for those states that they're trying to take over.
The question is whether Republicans will take this seriously or be left wondering what happened all over again.
