Will Dems Buy Up Secretary of States and Rig Elections Again?
Buying up Secretary of State elections was a big part of the secret sauce for the Dem 2020 strategy. Control election rules and you're in a prime position to rig elections. And, inspired by Soros, the Dems did it pretty cheaply.
“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.
Last I heard they were planning to spend $7 million this time around.
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.
A lot of money is going into key races. Especially in Michigan.
The Democratic Association of Secretaries of State raised $202,000 in the first six months of 2019, the report said — the first time the national group ever had cleared six figures in the first half of an odd-numbered year.
Then the group cleared $1 million in the first half of 2021.
In Michigan, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, had nearly quintupled her 2018 cycle draw as of last October, coming in at $1.2 million.
It's a lot easier and cheaper to steal an election than it is to unsteal it.The question is whether Republicans are going to be on the ball this time around.
