Polls have been closed for a day, and we still don't know the outcome of some of the most consequential races from the 2022 midterms. In Arizona, hundreds of thousands of ballots are outstanding statewide, leaving the results of important races, like the Gubernatorial and Senate, unclear. (You can follow RNLA Chair Harmeet Dhillon for the latest on Arizona.)
And an additional ~ 125k absentees mailed in Saturday to Tuesday. Again, we expect to pick up votes from all these batches.— Harmeet K. Dhillon (@pnjaban) November 9, 2022
As Election Day 2022 comes to a close, Florida continues to be the poster child for how impactful state election reforms can be. Within a few hours of the polls closing, winners of most races were determined with confidence. Governor Ron DeSantis and U.S. Senator Marco Rubio both won decisive victories.Read more
In October, the Republican National Committee (RNC) announced it would be taking Google to court over the big tech company's alleged use of spam filters to block get-out-the-vote (GOTV) and fundraising efforts:
the Republican National Committee (RNC) filed a lawsuit against Google in federal court regarding its censorship of Republican fundraising and get-out-the-vote (GOTV) emails. For nearly a year, the RNC has tracked how Google has arbitrarily throttled the RNC’s ability to communicate with Gmail users by routing nearly 100% of RNC emails to spam during key fundraising and GOTV periods like clockwork each month. Earlier this year, the RNC filed an FEC complaint after the publication of a non-partisan study which found that Gmail, Google’s email platform, routed Republican emails to “spam” at a rate approximately 820% higher than similar Democrat emails during the 2020 Election cycle, while Microsoft Outlook and Yahoo did not.Read more
Early Friday, House Judiciary Republicans released a new report entitled, "FBI Whistleblowers: What Their Disclosures Indicate About the Politicization of the FBI And Justice Department."
#BREAKING: Republicans Release 1,000 Page Report on FBI & DOJ Politicization— House Judiciary GOP (@JudiciaryGOP) November 4, 2022
The report builds on various whistleblower disclosures describing the FBI’s Washington hierarchy as “rotted at its core” with a “systemic culture of unaccountability.” https://t.co/6psSABaaIk
In sum, the report explained:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the stewardship of Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland, is broken. The problem lies not with the majority of front-line agents who serve our country, but with the FBI’s politicized bureaucracy. The problem lies, for example, with the FBI hierarchy that spied on President Trump’s campaign and ridiculed conservative Americans. The problem lies with FBI bureaucrats who altered and mischaracterized evidence to federal courts, circumvented safeguards, and exploited weaknesses in policies governing investigations and informants to target politically disfavored subjects and to protect favored ones. The problem lies with the FBI structure that centralizes high-profile cases in D.C., in the hands of politicized actors with politicized incentives. Quite simply, the problem—the rot within the FBI—festers in and proceeds from Washington.Read more
Shocking video released by Fox News earlier today reveals that Biden's Border Crisis is not letting up anytime soon.
NEW: Our thermal drone team witnessed several hundred migrants crossing illegally into Normandy, TX before sunrise this AM. Per CBP source, Border Patrol’s Del Rio sector has already had over 46,000 illegal crossings since October 1st, including 1,700+ in last 24 hours. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/W5FVL1G0eF— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) November 3, 2022
In a victory for Virginia Republicans, Prince William County has been ordered to have more Republican poll workers in local precincts:
With just days to go before the midterm election, a state judge on Wednesday ordered a county in northern Virginia to change its lineup of poll workers to ensure more precincts have both Republicans and Democrats overseeing voting.Read more
One of the most pervasive narratives being pushed about our elections is that voting has become more difficult and voter suppression is rampant. However, Michigan's Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brand Raffensperger teamed up earlier this week to bust this myth in an op-ed published by USA Today:
Voters in recent years have been inundated with disinformation telling them they can’t trust their fellow citizens and neighbors who administer elections. That voting is getting harder, and powerful forces are trying to prevent them from expressing their voice. That in a nation as closely divided as ours, the only secure election is one where the candidate they voted for wins.Read more
Today, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina ("the UNC case") and Students for Fair Admissions Inc. v. President & Fellows of Harvard College ("the Harvard case"), which, together, are expected to overturn Grutter v. Bollinger and hold that the use of affirmative action policies in college admissions is unconstitutional.
Happening now: about 100 people, mostly Asian, are gathered in front of the Supreme Court to rally against affirmative action, one day before hearings begin in the Harvard/UNC cases. They are holding signs like: “I am Asian American, I have a dream too” pic.twitter.com/J6f4FKzian— Amy Qin (@amyyqin) October 30, 2022
The 2022 midterms are still ongoing, but failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is already sowing doubt on the outcome of the 2024 presidential election.

With less than two weeks until Election Day, candidates are taking to the debate stage to face off on the issues. Last night, it did not go well for them. Blatant lies, misrepresentations, and even casual dismissals of the voters concerns were part of three Democrat candidates' playbook.
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer was the classic example of this. While debating Republican candidate Tudor Dixon on Tuesday night, Whitmer claimed that schools were only closed for 3 months as a result of the COVID pandemic.Read more
