While national media attention is focused on Congress, I wanted to send a quick update on the critical secretary of state races where Donald Trump is trying to install cronies to oversee the next election. Here’s what we know so far:
Voters have emphatically rejected Trump’s hand-picked candidates in Michigan and Minnesota. That’s undeniably good news -- if you’re reading this, you had a hand in those victories.
But we’re not out of the woods. Ballots are still being counted in Arizona and Nevada, and it could be days before we have definitive results.
One thing I’m absolutely sure of right now is that I’m so glad we fought these fights. In so many key races across the country, voters refused to put election deniers in power -- that’s because reasonable, patriotic Americans fought back. Many of you worked with me through Democratic Majority Action PAC to help defeat the “Sedition Caucus” in Congress, leading to a huge victory in Pennsylvania’s Senate race. (And, if the current results hold, we might have helped unseat Lauren Boebert in Colorado.)
Even with these pivotal victories, these results are a sobering reminder that the margin between having a functioning democracy and not is still way too close for comfort.
As the saying goes, the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to know that this team will never stand by and do nothing in the face of existential threats to our nation’s founding ideals.
For now, I want to send my congratulations to the great pro-democracy candidates who’ve won their races and my thanks to you for everything you’ve done to help deliver those wins.
There will be more progress to come -- and inevitably there will be some setbacks, too. No matter what, I’m glad we’re in this fight together. Because it’s nowhere close to over.
